This is a favour to a friend who’s doing Psychology in college this year and needs some answers from actual intelligent people (none of our collegefolk qualify).
What, in your mind, is love? What does it mean? How do you know when you’re in love and how do you feel when you are? What changes in you when you’re in love, and what do you feel like when you fall out of it? (If you’ve never been in love, then please just answer what you believe.)
And the first person who mentions Haddaway will be traced and then mercilessly hunted down by my squad of pirate detectives in their steam-powered UFO’s. With lasers.
hmm… tough question with an answer hard to put into words
heres my thought on it…
Love is… drum roll Ahem…
when I really want to be with someone because that person makes me feel “complete”… I consider myself in love… without that person i’d feel empty and I’ll do anything to be with/for her,(for example skip classes) and at that moment it doesn’t even seem stupid… I feel ehm… happy… no… it’s more than happy,
I can’t stop thinking bout her, wouldn’t know how to live without her, I’ll do anything to please her, even things i normally hate, just to make her happy…
hmmz it’s not like i fall out of love in the blink of an eye… it’s more of a process just as falling in love is…

I don’t think it’s something can be defined, and until you’re actually in love, it’s not something that you can comprehend. Well, I guess you can define it biologically by hormones, nerve impulses and the like, but that’s not all it is. It just becomes, well, everything I guess, the most important part of your life. And as for when you know you’re in love, it’s something that you just know deep down. When you are in love, it fells as though, no matter what happens, everything will be alright as long as that person is still there by your side.
For me, it’s been a warmth, a cozy, content feeling when I’m cradled in the other person’s arms. It’s also about being vulnerable and sharing yourself completely with the other person… something which has its drawbacks. :\ Sacrifices are a part of love too, I think. Sacrifices without regret or resentment… kinda difficult though, at times. ^^;
I am not too interested in this “love” thing, it’s just that there is a thin line between love and hate. [/b]
Yeah, the line has name. It’s called “The Entire Array of Every Other Human Emotion.” TEAEOHE for short.
And that concludes our lesson on love and hate being exact opposites.
