What Is Love?

Recommended Posts

This would actually work as a real topic...

 

It is where you live for a single person.

 

You want to be with that person always.

 

You will be there for the person when they are sick.

 

You will be there for the good and bad times.

 

You will survive fights and continue to love.

 

You will die with that person.

 

Never forgetting your love.

 

That my friends, is what love is.

Studies in neuroscience have involved chemicals that are present in the brain and might be involved when people experience love. These chemicals include:nerve growth factor , testosterone, estrogen, dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, and vasopressin. Adequate brain levels of testosterone seem important for both human male and female sexual behavior. Dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin are more commonly found during the attraction phase of a relationship.Oxytocin and vasopressin seemed to be more closely linked to long term bonding and relationships characterized by strong attachments.

The conventional view in biology is that there are two major drives in love — sexual attraction and attachment. Attachment between adults is presumed to work on the same principles that lead an infant to become attached to his or her mother or father– or both.

The chemicals triggered that are responsible for passionate love and long-term attachment love seem to be more particular to the activities in which both persons participate rather than to the nature of the specific people involved.

Anthropologist Helen Fisher also adds lust to the experience of love. Lust exposes people to others, and is the initial passionate sexual desire that promotes mating, and involves the increased release of chemicals such as testosterone and estrogen. These effects rarely last more than a few weeks or months.

If you want to be a cynical man about it.

 

That is an explanation for people who do not believe in the real power of love.

 

Until you experience what it is really like, using your science mumbo jumbo means nothing.

 

Now I am not a religious man, but if god is real, and made our feelings of love, he made it to where it is chemicals.

 

But we would still not feel anything if it wasn't within our hearts too.

Think of love as an acronym that stands for the following:

 

Lie about ones accomplishments to make one's self look better

Overly complement people to make them like you

Vengeful when somepony else gets your love

Extremely addictive, so much that it will consume your life and take control of it

 

 

I'm so grateful that I'm not in love.

Funny, thelast 2 are true.

 

But the other ones are not. At all.

 

You compliment because you love them. Not because you want them to like you.
