love: “romantic”, “true”, and “genuine” or …?

Home » love: "romantic”, “true”, and "genuine" or ...?

Deep and romanting feeling, passion or pure affection?

Love is the most strong, deep and intense of all human feelings. From ancient times up to the present day, many famous poets, writers and anthropologists worldwide dedicated their works to explore the origin and metamorphosis of this potential sentiment. On one hand, it makes us unreasonably happy. On the other, nothing hurts and bites as it does.

Some say that it’s possible to experience true love only once in a life time. Other talk about two or more possibilities. Sadly, there those who don’t believe in fondness anymore, due to their dramatic experience. To further complicate matters, nowadays people are getting more and more sceptic.

This way, once upon a time this strong and tender feeling was mostly referred to as “romantic”, “pure”, “real”, “true”, “genuine”, “profound”, “passionate”. Today, we are mostly talking about “physical”, “sexual”, “erotic”, “extra-marital”, and “no-strings-attached” relationship.

Personally, I am incurably romantic. I do believe in love. Therefore, whether an unhappy experience stopped by, my advice is: “Always remember, that everything that doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger!”

And finally, accept it or not, but all people need love!
