What Is Love?

Love is a set of emotions and behaviors characterized by intimacy, passion, and commitment. It inolves care, closeness, protectiveness, attraction, affection, and trust. Love can vary in intensity and can change over time. It is associated with a range of positive emotions, including happiness, excitement, life satisfaction, and euphoria, but it can also result in negative emotions such as jealousy and stress.

Love is most likely influenced by both biological drives and cultural influences. But the way we express and experience love is also influenced by our personal conceptions of love.

According to psychologist Zick Rubin, romantic love is made up of three elements:3

  • Attachment: Needing to be with another person and desiring physical contact and approval

  • Caring: Valuing the other person's happiness and needs as much as your own

  • Intimacy: Sharing private thoughts, feelings, and desires with the other person

Based on this view of romantic love, Rubin developed two questionnaires to measure these variables, known as Rubin's Scales of Liking and Loving. While people tend to view people they like as pleasant, love is marked by being devoted, possessive, and confiding in one another.

Some researchers suggest that love is a basic human emotion just like happiness or anger, while others believe that it is a cultural phenomenon that arises partly due to social pressures and expectations.

Research has found that romantic love exists in all cultures, which suggests that love has a strong biological component. It is a part of human nature to seek out and find love. However, culture can significantly affect how individuals think about, experience, and display romantic love.

How to Practice Love

There is no single way to practice love. Every relationship is unique, and each person brings their own history and needs. Some things that you can do to show love to the people you care about include:

  • Be willing to be vulnerable

  • Be willing to forgive

  • Do your best and be willing to apologize when you make mistakes

  • Let them know that you care

  • Listen to what they have to say

  • Prioritize spending time with the other person

  • Reciprocate loving gestures and acts of kindness

  • Recognize and acknowledge their good qualities

  • Share things about yourself

  • Show affection

  • Show unconditional love

So take out time from your bust schedule for your dear & near ones and practise love.

REMEMBER: You give love, you get loved. Love is an act of doing.
