Love

What is love?

Love is a strong and pleasant emotional and mental state that includes sublime virtue, deep interpersonal affection, and simple joy. A mother’s love differs from a spouse’s love, which differs from a food lover’s love. Love is typically defined as a strong attraction and emotional attachment. Vanity, selfishness, amour-propre, and egotism are regarded to be human moral flaws that might lead to mania, obsession, or codependency. It can also refer to loving gestures towards other humans, oneself, or animals. Love is one of the most common motifs in the creative arts, owing to its core psychological relevance. Love has been proposed as a function that keeps humans together against threats and helps the species survive. The Greeks distinguished six types of love: familial (Storge), platonic (Philia), romantic (Eros), self-love (Philautia), and divine (Xenia) (Agape). Unrequited love, empty love, companionate love, consummate love, enamoured love, self-love, and courtly love have all been defined by modern authors. In addition to Ren, Yuanfen, Mamihlapinatapai, Cafuné, Kama Bhakti Mett Ishq Chesed Amore Charity Saudade (and various versions or symbioses of these states) are culturally specific terminology, definitions, or expressions of love lacking in the English language. Emotion research has risen dramatically over the last two decades. The colour wheel theory of love defines three primary, three secondary, and nine tertiary love types. Love, according to the triangular hypothesis, is defined by “intimacy, passion, and commitment.” Love is also religious or spiritual. Love is unlike any other emotional state since it has so many functions and meanings.
