This Can't Be Love: Why Affection, Attachment, Respect--Even Passion--Are Not Love

Green Lifestyle  (tags: Love, Can't, Affection, Passion )

Interesting..but i've always thought the explanation of loving another person boils down to the fact that in love you are wanting and willing to make the other person happier than yourself.
Not in a self-denial way, (though that may be a by-product in certain cases,) but in a truly altruistic one.
If you don't have that feeling, it may be something, but real, from the heart and soul and breath of your being, love it's not. Thanks Olivia
