We are all human and need love in one way or another. We need to feel a sense of belonging and comfort. There are no scientific explanations why people love, but there are many philosophical theories about love. There are personal factors that prove love does exist in every individual. Many people confuse love with different emotions. Infatuation, lust and other feelings of desire are often misinterpreted with love. Love is something that you cannot touch or see but it is there. It is patient and kind, and does not lie. When in love, a person loses sight on many factors of life. Love can make people blind in the sense that they do not think straight. Everyone has their own point of view and their own theories, yet in most cases we all seem to end up with similar conclusions. This is because we all love in different ways, some more affectionately than others. Love comes in different shapes, forms and sizes.
I constantly question the power of love. All over the world people fall in love, or do they? How do we really know that we are in fact in love rather than just feeling infatuation? My personal encounters have helped me come to an understanding. When you get emotional over something tiny and feel as if your heart is about to explode for your significant other, then that leads to love. You become protective and overly sensitive about your relationship. You tend to want that person around forever. Infatuation, on the other hand, is longing for that person for a period of time. You do not always want that person around. Infatuation is more of a sexual need rather than emotional. .
Every individual has his/her perception towards love. The statement, "It is better to have loved and lost, then never to have loved at all", I personally disagree with. I can honestly say that I have found the love of my life and I cannot imagine one day in the future without him. That statement is just an opinion, which someone wrote from their point of view, it is not necessarily false.
