Thread: Is love a conscious decision?

  1. #21


    Hmmm....for me, love is a feeling that thrives by making a conscious effort to access it.

    I can find myself having fallen in love with someone seemingly out of nowhere, but commitment and duty that help keep that love alive are very much a conscious decision.

    In a way it's like love forces my consciousness to make different decisions, instead of my consciousness deciding that my emotions feel love.

    I disagree with the assessment that one can not control attraction or falling in love. Both can be done.
    It's usually subconscious, but definitely doesn't have to be i.e. one can control and direct processes that are usually largely subconscious via conscious processes. It's never a clear distinction anyway.

    It depends on how you define love. The way I like to think of it is a feeling you have for someone. If you agree with this definition, I think it is not a rational or conscious decision.
