    I understand love isn't always sunshine and daffodils, but as a whole, love is a pleasant experience. (At least, it is for me.)

    I've learned that admiration is one of the most important elements.

    My dad once told me if I killed someone he'd help hide the body.

    Louis CK recently did a piece on why we're so obsessed with our phones and social media, why we'll text in traffic literally risking our lives to simply receive or send a message. We all have a deep emptiness we fill with things, and above all, I think that void is best filled with interpersonal attention and care. Love is having that empty space wholly consumed, probably at its optimum when perceived as reciprocating.

    (I am now at that point where I can recycle my old posts)

    Just out of curiousity, did you read the capitals or the whole thing first?
    I'm going to lose track of what the hidden sentence is if you ask me to pay attention to every single capital letter.

    edit: oh i read the first few letters and realized what it was

    LAME i was expecting something philosophical

    I love that song - one of my absolute favorites!

    Seriously though, to answer the question: I believe that love is friendship. I mean, you can't truly love someone unless you at least know that person the way a friend would, right? And friendship on its own could potentially lead to love.
    Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.

    And what of the poor souls who fall in love with people they don't know as friends, but from the mere act of observation and acquaintanceship, or is that only a derivative of lust?

    Aw, come now - I didn't say there weren't exceptions! But in general, it takes time to get to know someone well enough before you come to love that person COMPLETELY. This is from my own experience (and believe me, I've met with a lot of heartbreak in the past as a result of believing in the very statement that you have claimed here).

    We are the only inter-subjective species on Earth.

    And being inter-subjective makes love possible.

    But what is fascinating in this thread is that love is seen as sexual love.

    This is plainly special pleading.

    I like these quotes:

    “Love is the beauty of the soul.” -Saint Augustine

    “Love is love’s reward.” -John Dryden

    “Love is like a Rubix Cube, there are countless numbers of wrong twists and turns, but when you get it right, it looks perfect no matter how you look at it.” -Brain Cramer

    “True love is like ghosts, Which everybody talks about and few have seen.” -LA Rochefoucauld

    “Some say true love is a mirage; seek it anyway, for all else is surely desert.” -Robert Brault

    “Young love is from the earth, and late love is from heaven.” -Turkish Proverb

    “Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.” -Peter Ustinov

    “Wherever love is, I want to be, I will follow it as surely as the land-locked salmon finds the sea.” -Jeanette Winterson
