What is love?

Sometimes, when your life is at a low ebb, you might ask yourself this very question. The obvious, sometimes isn’t so obvious after all. The psychology of love is an altogether different animal, let me explain.

You love your lifetime partner even though at some point in your life you didn’t even know they existed. You love your son or daughter but would not want to spend the rest of your life with them. You love your parents, but that love does not necessitate feelings of affection for them

Your lifetime partner might not turn out to be the one you love. You might have thought it was love, but then you find that perhaps you don’t love them. You undoubtedly did at some point, but the reality of it is maybe now you don’t. Do you stay with this person? Do you lead a life and a lie? Do you tell them you still love them, send those cards on Valentine’s Day, give them presents for Christmas?

The short answer is yes. Why? In the back of your mind you want this person to be with you, to be by your side. And therein is the crux of the definition. It doesn’t matter if you are talking the older generations of your family, the current generations of your family, or the younger generations, you love them because you want to be with them. You want to know them, you want to talk to them, and you want to be in contact with them.
