Definition Of Love

Any time that someone asks what’s love or to define love, they’ll usually begin by differentiating between love and lust because we all know what lust is. However we can not define Love by what it isn’t nor any other quote that’s been passed around for years. So you ready? Here it is…

Love as a non-platonic adjective is the extremity of the bond(commonly referred to as relationship) that 2 people or entities share. It’s a level of necessity in one’s life that starts at 0 and has infinite growing potential.

Now let me break that down a bit because already I can hear you scratching your head. People always say things like, it was “Love at first sight” which couldn’t be further from the truth. In that context, love is something you stumble upon and pick up like a seashell. In the definintion I gave, love is something you grow and nurture that becomes stronger with time and energy invested. What some people mistake for “love at first sight” is often a lust for love at first sight. The thought of finally meeting that person who fits your image of the one you could love is what you were lusting for which could very well evolve into love with time. But if you met that person and the next day heard they got in a car wreck and died, you would forget about them in a week. On the contrary, if you spent 20 years investing time and energy into loving that person, their death would leave you feeling sick, lost, and mourning possibly for the rest of your life. Now who’s to quantify at what extremity does ‘love’ officially exist? That can only be measured by the love that already exists in your life amongst friends or family and at what point you’ll dignify the degree at which you want a person to be in your life to be deemed “Love”. If you agree or disagree, feel free to let me know but if it doesn’t make sense, stay tuned. More to come.
