Everybody in this thread is a virgin, and has never held down a longterm relationship.

Edit,
Except for Stevehouse, i think i've seen him around the relationship thread, and he seems like a pretty non-virginal chap.

Love is strong emotional attachment right? so to question whether it exists or not is to question whether emotion exists or not.

Love is the worst defined word in the English language.

i love ice cream and pizza, i love my wife, i love guitar.

all VERY different definitions of the word "love".

love is vital, and love is just a fleeting fancy.

emotions do exists i think if you think about emotions as a release of hormones


sry for my bad english
#18
@ op

If you study philosophy you should know about ontology. The question is a lot easier if we separate love as in a bilogical reaction with hormones, love as in strong feelings for another person and love as in hollywood.

The idea of love existed long before hollywood. I agree that its just a drive to reproduce. The idea of love is us attaching sentimantal value to give our lives more excitement and make our existance that bit less depressing.

I for one am perfectly comfortable with the idea.

The Hollywood-esque idea of 'love' is a bunch of bs. It's a myth that everyone subscribes to because everyone else does, sort of an 'emperor's new clothes' thing. Everyone thinks that everyone else believes in love, so they must have just not experienced it yet, while in reality it was probably just invented by some clever caveperson or something, like so:

Cavewoman's father: Come here!
Cavewoman (let's call her Susie): What, daddy?
Father: You are going to move into Ug's cave and have many children.
Susie: ...
Susie: I don't want to.
Father: Why not? Ug is very good hunter and kills many woolly mammoth.
Susie: I want to move into Og's cave and have many children.
Father: But Og is not as good of a hunter. He just bangs stick on log all day.
Susie: ...but...
Susie: But I love Og.
Father ...
Father: What is 'love'?
Susie: 'Love' is when you need to be with someone more than anything. It's when something inside you pulls you toward them and you can't help it.
Father: Hmmm... Love...
Father: Ok, you can move into Og's cave and have many children. Because of this 'love'.

Basically, love was probably invented by some clever cavewoman as an excuse, even though it was really just because Og had a large club.

not a hollywood thing. it has got to come from somewhere. the biology is bull because you wouldn't say a gorilla is in love. i just think its another higher order process that separates us from lower order species. (been with the same girl for 4 years!)

For real though, congrats. My last relationship fell apart at the one year ten months mark.

Well, love existed before Hollywood, but Hollywood has done quite the job skewering what vague and sometimes varying definition of love most people hold.

i heard somewhere that "love" is an expression created by the french to transform the irracional (animal, nature status) need of a partner to procriate in a noble act. it is like an excuse to justify your irracional need for the opposite gender. call it whatever you like, "love", "crush", anything, but it all boils down to this: like the animals we are, we are naturally programmed to reproduce. the only thing that distinguishes us from the other animals and their relashionships is our ability to evaluate someone according to our standards and eventually get very well along with that someone, nothing else.

Shakespeare knew love best in one of his sonnets... one sec ill find it. I might have interperetted it wrong but sonnet 116.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.


To me it says true love is one that is permanent... so it's saying that if your not with them till the end it wasn't love.. but thats what I got from it.

Love is an idea, much like happiness, and hate, and global warming.

Hollywood took it to a whole new level.
