What is Love Really Like?

It's not like a fart - a momentary impulse that's forgotten in a few moments. But it's not like a flower either, or a sunset or puppies or kittens or some warm fuzzy feeling. Want to know what I think it's like? Really? You won't like it.

Those guys at Chernobyl came close to it, the ones who went back into the reactor when it was brewing up and managed to shut most of it down and thereby saved a goodly sized chunk of Europe. Nurse deserves a mention too, despite one alt member's mutterings about rabbits and hot water, for putting up with my behaviour over so many years.

What I think love is like is when some dudes you never even met before are driving nails through your wrists and ankles, preparatory to hanging you up to die in the most painful and publicly degrading way devised by man up to that time, and mocking you just to add insult to injury, and you ask God to forgive them. That's what I think love is like.

A very interesting topic

I think "love" may be indefinable! You just know it when you experience it...

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. George Bernard Shaw

You are right Jenny that love is indefinable. It's a term that's used very broadly and I may be arrogant in putting one interpretation above others. But I put these topics out for discussion so your input is most welcome.

i really liked this......i believe there are many types of love........romantic, sexual, familial, best friend. Each type of love is so different yet it all starts with the mind.

Yes, many types of love, but with a common theme of selflessness, of wanting what's best for the beloved over our own interests. Thank you for the comment. It's all grist for the mill.

I like how you describe love. It is a form of selflessness where another is more important then you are. It's a beautiful feeling.

arero replies on 3/17/2019 5:16 pm:
And it's a great mystery, how helping and being nice to others enriches our own life, so it's also selfish in a way.

I trust your move goes well.
