What is Love???

What is love? I have to ask this question simply because many people say they love something, and then next second they hate it. What is love because love is use so broad, that I have come to this conclusion that we have lost love true definition? What is your meaning of love?

First off, I would like to say that too many people have confused Love with Lust. Mostly what we feel when we are really turned on and excited about the opposite sesometimes same in some cases) is really lust. Love, however, I have decided is not so much a feeling as it is a choice. I choose to love... Love is something that we have that allows us to bond to others.

In the case of "loving" objects. Well, when I say that I love my truck, I am really saying that there is something about the object that meets a specific need in my life and I "chose" the truck. When the time comes that the vehicle is broke down or wrecked, I will choose to get another one. The problem is that too many people take this same "temporary" feeling of "love" and apply it to others.

When someone says that they love their mate, they are choosing to be with that person in an intimate way. The problem is that too many choose not to love - they rather lust after someone until the "new car smell" wears off and once they get a few miles on them, they want to trade them in. In my case, I love my wife... however... does that mean that now that after almost 17 years and our love life is crap that I should "trade her in on a newer model?".... no, I choose to stay with her because I love her... But sometimes, I do like to go down to the dealership, test drive that new, younger, sportier model.... I know I cant afford anything else, but it sure is fun to drive! [blog AttallaJ]
