LOVE – this word must be one of the most used words in the human world, regardless of the language or culture. But there are so many different meanings to this one simple word. This word is used often in all languages to express the English word. It is hard to define this word universally, although all speak it and exercise it but different people may adopt a different perspective or depth of it. The breadth and depth of the word “love” can be so wide that it defies definite meaning.
It is usually defined as a type of feeling that one has towards someone or something or some situation. It could be directed to some positive sentiment. It has been noted that love can change over time.
There are many types of love but 2 main ones are impersonal love and interpersonal love.
An impersonal love is some sentiment that is acted on by a person towards a non-human such as a principle, object or goal which the person is very passionate about or has great commitment to. Impersonal love can have one loving a simple object such as lingerie even, or animals like the ‘dog being a man’s best friend’ or activities like golf or tennis, where time and effort are invested into that focus. It is impersonal as affection is beloved into things and animals instead of people.
Interpersonal love is a sentiment that exists between two or more humans. It is usually a strong feeling of one person towards another; hence, it is involved in human relationships usually among people who know each other or have some kind of relationship like spouses, partners, family, friends, collections and the like.
Love has been a favorite on the different aspects of life, be it philosophy, religion, psychology and science. There is a never ending study to understand what it really is and how it really works. There have been many theories as there are many phenomenon occurrences such as the sacrificial love of a mother for her child.
Positivity in love
When two parties claim to be in love, it is necessary to exhibit your claim. Doing things for one another is one sure way to show your love is true and not just mere words. There are a few languages of love – saying nice things about the one you love, doing something nice for the one you love, giving a listening ear to your loved ones, giving something to delight your loved ones and touching your loved ones gently. Being positive about your loved ones in every way helps build up your love for one another; even in simple situations like asking your opinion on a dress or donning the sexy lingerie that you like.
