    The love as defined by some social scientist model does not seem to neatly apply in such a situation.

    Commitment is a different thing altogether.
    To me love = commitment.

    Not sure how you can separate the two.

    love is a commitment??? that's a little depressing... if someone decides to stay with me doens't mean they love me just means they have stamina surely
    ... couldn't drag me away

    I for one didn't mind your long post.




    Probably because I skipped right toward the compliment part.

    Hmm, I guess I should have phrased it better.

    There is more to love than a mere commitment, but it's certainly an indispensable part of it.

    really.... you can't have love without a commitment... I certainly do agree though that being madly in love and being committed is not very far apart

    I'm poetically inclined.

    No, I can't say that it works like that for me.

    Love is a Sturm-und Drang like cocktail of the elements you've mentioned above, it's a flame that may grow bigger and smaller, but one that requires a spark in order to exist. Not a commitment (although I'd have to know what exactly you mean by this). Which may or may not follow from the flame.

    The spark can be analogous to lust. It's just one of the many components that leads to love.

    EDIT: Let me rephrase. Love can't be attributed to one "ingredient". There is no real guideline. When the right ingredients are added, a synthesis occurs.

    Grin, I enjoyed the last couple of pages of this thread. I'm dating an INTJ myself and I so recognize this *grin*

    And, hard as it is, I have to agree with Edgar on just about anything he said. One question though Edgar...how is it that you INTJ's are able to handle our unicorns and rainbows in all your sarcasm and cyniscism??

    An INTJ is an odd creature: a cross between a gruffy badger (cynic) and Pegasus (visionary).

    We don't get to use the visionary part as often as we like, and that's where the ENFPs come in.
