What Is Your Definition Of Love?

So Beyonce - or "Queen Bey" according to adoring fans - almost fell during her performance of her new song "Formation" at the Super Bowl 50 but, like the pro she is, she quickly got back in formation. You may not notice it because it happened pretty quickly. Watch the video and see for yourself and also get the full scoop of the Super Bowl here and here

Super-Bowl-50-Beyonce-Coldplay-Mark-Ronson-February-2016-BellaNaija0003Now that you're all caught up on that, do you believe in love? Did you happen to notice the "Believe in Love" in this photo from the Super Bowl? That inspired this post. It's the season of love and how do you plan to get the most out of it if you don't even believe? But to believe in love, you first have to understand what love is. So, what is love?  Apparently, "what is love" was the most searched phrase on google in 2012. This means that people really want to know. Here are some answers I found -

Love is a variety of different feelings, states and attitudes that range from interpersonal affection "I love my mother" to pleasure "I loved that meal". It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment - wikipedia

Love is expressed as an action and experienced as a feeling. Yet, love has an essence that resists definition in any single way: it encompasses compassion, determination, endurance, support, faith, and much more - wikihow

Strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties <maternal love for a child> or attraction based on sexual desire - affection and tenderness felt by lovers or affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests <love for his old schoolmates> or an assurance of affection <give her my love> - merriam-webster

I have come to understand that love means different things for different people:

  • To the Physicist: Love is chemistry
  • To the Psychotherapist: Love has many guises
  • To the Philosopher: Love is a passionate commitment
  • To the romantic Novelist: Love drives all great stories
  • To the Nun: Love is free yet binds us

From lifehack.org ...

So do you agree with any of these definitions? 

Do you believe in love? 

What is love to you?
