  What is Love?

When I went to look up the definition for love, it appeared as if the word love has basically the same universal meaning throughout the entire world.  However there are many variations, perceptions, and attitudes towards love. The cultural, social, religious, ethnic and other diverse interpretations of love may depend on the country or even community. Here are just a few from throughout the world. With our diverse population presently here in the United States, we will see many changes in the future.

 Don’t the Synonyms and Antonyms illustrate a more likely description of the wonderful world in diversity of human relationships? These are a few brief definitions taken from the following page as illustrated in different languages.

1. Attachment: bond, love, friendship, tenderness, and esteem. But as an antonym to some it may mean alienation, enmity, possession and confiscation, possibly even as personal property!

2.  Fondness:  affection, concern, kindness, devotion, and regards. As an antonym it could relate to aversion, antipathy, opposition and even to some, confinement!

3. Affection: friendship, goodwill, solicitude and loves. To some people the antonym is unkindness, aversion, antipathy and other distortions.

  4. Sympathy: compassion, harmony, tenderness, and affection. Strange how some people misconstrue sympathy as a sign of weakness! The antonyms contain words just the opposite: dislike unkindness, discord.

5 Partiality: liking, inclination, preference, one-sidedness and favoritism. The antonyms, honor, fairness, equality, justice, to some are meaningless words.

6.Adore: love, praise, honor, and worship, reverence. Antonyms could mean hate, despise, mock.

Notice the common ingredient that all these definitions seemed to have? Depending on one’s perception, there are different inferences to be interpreted.

Dr. Leo Buscaglia may have had a more accurate definition: " To fall in love, I do not believe that one falls in or out of love. One grows in love."

While the definitions of each of these words may be the same in the dictionary, different cultures may have different understandings of synonyms and antonyms. It is based on one’s perception. We have the unique ability of individually taking each word and distorting and confusing the meaning.  Isn't this true with some of our relationships?

Over the years I have asked patients and groups, their definitions of love. It is truly amazing the variety of interpretations that can evolve. Children especially have the most amusing answers.

This is why the journey into love is so fascinating.

The chemistry of love!




Ever wonder why we have those funny feelings of rapture, excitement, contentment, passion and all those other delightful emotions that come with love? We have often heard the statement; "It's the chemistry!" You know it may just be the right chemistry!

Anthropologist Helen Fisher feels that romantic love started when humans commenced walking on their own two feet. Or, was it when we started noting physical characteristics of a potential mate.  Primitive humans stayed together long enough to rear children, which appeared to culminate in four years of marriage.

One wonders with the high divorce rate if we ever got out of that stage. Her studies of 62 cultures indicated the average rate of divorce peaks after 4 years of marriage. I had a patient, relate in confidence that after 4 years; “he gets tired of any relationship.” Just think of the model this type of thinking exhibits for a young person.

Fisher feels that there are biological changes, and for those who have been in love, there most definitely is a change in chemistry.  A person in love may experience flushed skin, heavy breathing, sweaty hands and a host of other wonderful tantalizing experiences. Isn't this part of the marvelous journey into love?

Fisher feels this is due to a rush of dopamine, norepinephrine and other chemical changes. She also states that the body may build up a tolerance to these chemicals in order to revive the same sensations and feelings. “Is this the reason why love may fade? People who spring from one relationship to another may crave the intoxication of falling in love and thus the term ‘Attraction junkies.’ " 

Conversely, just think of the long-term and enduring marriages that persist for a lifetime? It's nice to think that Fisher feels the continued presence of the long-term partner is what stimulates the chemicals such as endophins, which are the soothing substances, and natural pain reduces.  She also relates that there are other chemicals that appeared to produce various body responses conducive to physical love, such as cuddling and muscle contractions and even orgasms.

Wouldn't it be interesting if somebody came up with the theory that maybe, there could be love viruses attached to these chemicals? Certainly we know there is a relationship between the Mind-Body concept of health and illness or is it just our imagination? 

A different type of chemistry!

Ever drifting down the stream
Lingering in the golden gleam
Life what is it but a dream?
Lewis Carroll

Why not create your own dream?       

I have had a number of patients over the years that appeared totally incompatible, yet they remained together for years and years. They seem to be reasonably comfortable and accept the other person’s apparent and overt behavior patterns and actions.  My staff and I would wonder, how or why in the world, do they stay together?

One authority stated people who love each other intimately and who basically are not out to impress others with there so called "catch" have a tendency to overlook those portions of the mates natural changes that take place over the years. Changes such as looks, weight, physical ailments, career setbacks and a host of the other alterations in our lives. It's interesting to note that personality and character do not change. Pleasant memories of what they have been giving each other, such as children, comfort, pleasures and companionship, overcome what their mate's looks and status has been.

Another authority had made the statement  "I feel marriages and caring relationships are made in neurotic heaven."  The general feeling was that just because there is a neurotic element in most of us, so what if we have somebody who is comfortable feeding that neurosis? There is no way we can determine or understand anybody else’s feelings about love. With so many variations and ideas regarding a definition of love, who cares if happy people are those loving needs fit well together.

A brief classification for different responses to relationships from different kinds of lovers!  Again I don't like labels but try picturing yourself in a class of your own uniqueness.

Look at as a fun experiment!  Which class of lover do you fall under, if any

Men and women basically respond in equal percent to each of these classes.

A fleeting chance. Who wants to be tied down, initially is fine but will always find fault to leave.

First-timer. The first little experience rushes into romance, before evaluating the partner.

Soul saver. The self-sacrificing person committing to protecting the partner.

Necessity charmer. Supplies all the basic needs except, telling and sharing of love.

Macho. He or she is the greatest, at first!  Soon becomes calloused and indifferent.

Cool. Always feeling helpless and needing dependence on a strong partner.

Because. All my problems are due to you! 

Gratitude. I'll do everything for you and I ask nothing in return.

Hippie. I'm just different, the system is wrong!

Hotshot and Sensitive. Strong willed and weak at the same time, joyful and then unhappy, then you never know where you stand.
