What is Love?

What is love- a question I have pondered for as long as I can remember.

The question of love has always puzzled and intrigued me.

One thing I know to be true, is that love is different for everyone. I don’t believe that love is a generic term that can be freely used to describe a feeling that all individuals feel. Surely my love, cannot be identical to the love another feels?

Love comes in many forms; love for a partner, family, friends, and many others. People often refer to love for their family as different to the love they feel for their partner or friends, but what does that actually mean? What are the elements that make love?

Is love a feeling? An act? An emotion?

Love is such a fundamental part of life, yet it appears to be more easily experienced than defined.

Please share your thoughts and experiences of love!
