Focused on (love) idea of love as relevant as emotion, feeling?

When you "fall" in love, how relevant is the subjective, objective reality of ideas behind your love?
Are the feelings more relevant, less subjective, objective, more validated and in a pure form? Ideas always have the probability to be viewed as subjectivity.

Into focus, narrowed on love, are the ideas of love, concept of love, as relevant, as the emotions?
Does referring back to the concept of love taint the true relevance of the experience as you live through it? Are the emotions of love more pure, less subjective, objective than the ideas?


Maybe color theory, such things, were invented because they do provoke a more pure and less subjective, objective form of our selves.

Less subjective, less objective, if that makes sense...

  • Yeah, love is an emotion, like happiness or sadness.

    If you want to look at the "objective" reality of it, it's just the mental projection of our biological imperative to mate with healthy people to produce diverse and successful offspring. How unromantic.

    I really feel like your existential/psychological musings would work better as one big thread rather than a new thread every time. Maybe they all seem very distinct to you, but to me they all seem to cover very similar ground.

    I have to agree on this. Because of your threads reflects questions that you come up with after getting another one of your question answered, it'll also help your repliers to back their answers up with their previous posts without explaining everything that they previously did.

  • Thanks for sharing. I'll just lay low for a while then. I don't want to start my own thread.

    Thanks for being considerate of me though, it's appreciated. I'll lay off this stuff for a while.

  • I may sound a bit strange here, but... over a course of a few years I came to a conclusion that love as a feeling is something that is shared between a dog and it's owner (and I speak that as a person who has three dogs in his apartment... and a cat... and a turtle).

    Now, there is the chemistry, a.k.a. biological urge to reproduce, a.k.a. crush, a.k.a. 'a sparkle which was there but at some point just disappeared' (call however you want), now, that is not love, because love is a feeling which is earned, and it stays forever UNLESS it's broken.

    Now, there was this family, they had a dog. The moved from the ground house to an apartment, decided dog didn't fit there, so they left it outside of the house and, well, left the house. You know what the dog did? Followed them. To their apartment. What they did? Closed the door in front of the dog. Didn't let it in. Well, it was a 'she', so, didn't let her in. So, she remained on the streets. Someone picked her up. Some time later, the previous masters, accidentally, meet their old dog with the new master, but when they wanted to come closer to her, she barked at them like they were mortal enemies her whole life. The dog's love towards those people was broken. The bond of mutual trust, respect, interdependency, it disappeared.

    This bond is not unique to humans only (as you could tell from my post), but humans, when it doesn't concern blood relatives, do call it 'friendship' very often, because, well... it's kind of the same thing. Real friendship and real love, that is.

    That's my opinion on this matter.

  • I had thought of a dog myself. I'm not fully aware what goes on in a dog's head but they are a different type of animal than we are. They may be more "real", "pure".

    Here's a nother reply I got
    @Post said: It's more easy to describe your emotions in ways that most people can empathize with.

    So when I say that there's only two women on the planet I love, and I know this because I would never say the three words 'I<3u' to either of them, you and most people will understand what that means.

    In line with your previous posts and how I've been using a nihilistic twist to give you objective value in life (what) - love itself is very subjective, much less temporary (if you look at it - it changes often, and is limited by the subject's ability to feel and receive) - it exists though, but don't confuse it for something eternal; it can't possibly, and it isn't unchanging, so don't think that once you've found it, you have it.

  • Love is just an illusion. Kinda like there's no money in the world, only dept.

    Like depression. It's only lack of happiness. I'm looking at you, pessimist.

    Pessimist never gets disappointed.

  • I think love is more of a progress then an emotion, as there are many kinds of love. However, I'll just stick with the love love. I think that at first you need to talk to the person you like (since I'm a guy, I'll just refer to girls from here on out) and get to know them. You can't love a girl from just looking at a picture, but rather first understanding her own emotions. And of course it goes on to a relationship, sex, engagement, marriage, and unto death. However, you still love someone in a marriage, but then are the complications of love.

    Frankly, my first true opinion on love is getting into another relationship (me and my ex only went about 3 weeks, and met once a week).

    What does marriage have to do with it if you study love as a part of human behavior? Marriage is a deal, a contract, signatures on a sheet of paper and is exclusive to humans which makes it kind of unnatural.
