This is part
of my attempt to transfer
all the useful and/or intelligent information from my web page onto Everything
. This all started when I found the older version of my latest rant
. These are basically older interpretations of my current thought processes. This one is primarily about the difference between Love
, but it has some stuff on polygamy
thrown in at the end.
What is love? That is a question that has been bugging people for a long time. What is love? Why do people fall in love? Are there different levels of love? What is the difference between the love of a parent, and the love of a pet? I have been spending a lot of time thinking of the subject, and have decided to share my 'vast amounts of wisdom' with the rest of the world. I'll start with Love, love in society seems to consist of two separate things, love, which is what most people associate with the word love. And lust, which is what most people associate with genitalia. Happy relationships can come from either of the two, or both, although less likely to come from a pure lust relationship. A good analogy for lust and love is body, and spirit (or soul).
Lust is mostly a chemical reaction caused by pheromones. Two people see each other, the nose and your pores sense the pheromones, and sends out the signal, 'she's hot, let's go for a shag.' They meet, go out a few times, bang a couple of times, yippee. Now is when the problems start to set out, if they haven't already. They have to find something in common... basically if they would be compatible friends, cause after a while, the pheromones change. If they could be friends, then it might go on for longer, because they are so used to being bf/gf. Otherwise, the relationship will probably shatter.
Love is... love, there is no real way to describe it. You want to know the person, be with the person, it is like the person fills you. Two people can see each other for the first time, and nothing happens... but when they start to talk, they find out that the person is perfect for them. This is the kind of relationship where you see old people that have been married to the same people for 50 years. There is often lust involved, and that isn't a bad thing. In fact it is probably a good thing. And that's where I go into the difference between the love of a parent/pet, and love of a gf/bf
The difference is, mainly, lust. People have asked me if there were different types of love, and I said yes. But now that I think about it, it's not. Lust is the major difference. One of the big differences between a good friendship, and a relationship, is sex. I'm not saying that this is the only difference, but it is a big one. Love, contrary to popular belief, is only one thing, the love between gf/bf, and the love between a kid and his dog are the same, it's just with the dog there is no lust, and the intensity of the love is toned down.
Now, one of the big problems with love that pops up ever so often in our society, is what happens, if you fall in love with two people? I'm not one of those people who believe that everyone has a perfect match in life, but everyone does have matches, and probably more then one, actually, it's probably more then a hundred, it's just that the chances are you won't find more then one. but what if you do? You are in love with two people, and they are both in love with you. Society says that it is a bad thing, morally reprehensible, but it really isn't. I say bring back Polygamy, I'm not with the prospect of a man owning women, or vice versa, for that matter, but if three people can be happy together, why not?
