What is love?

Couple in love
Love is a strong and pleasant emotion you feel towards someone. Loving someone isn’t the same as being in love with them.

Being in love is the way you might feel at the start of a relationship, when you only see the positive things about the other person and you walk around with your head in the clouds. The feeling can be so intense it actually hurts – especially of course if the person doesn’t feel the same way about you.

Over time this in-love feeling changes, and you have a deeper, steadier, tender, caring feeling for the other person – you love them.

To round it up, love develops in different stages. First comes the passion of sexual attraction, then the dreamy, overwhelming in-love stage, and finally the deeper attachment that develops over time and can last for years or a lifetime.
