I as well as others believe that love is a chemical embalance of the brain. That the simultaneous firing of thousands of synapsis at once cause a sensory overload of sorts and coupled with pheramones, create a short term logic and rationale loss of the brain in both sexes.

I love my daughter because she is a part of me. I have no other motive other than to see her happy and succeed.  She is my flesh and blood and I hold the same love for her as I do for myself.

However, a woman is different.

Why do we choose to love someone who doesn't love us?  Why do we continue to sacrifice every muscular stand of our hearts of someone who couldn't care less if we breathe tomorrow?

Why do we latch onto people with this huge emotion, knowing damn well that they are no earthly good for us? 

Now, don't comment as if that has never happened to you.  Woman or man, it has happened to everyone.

I bet you're waiting for me to say something wise beyond my years, aren't you? Well, this time, I don't have any of those things to say. 

So, we'll learn together. We'll become aware of this together.

I always enjoy your comments, but this time, your comments are a part of the story. 

Tell me what you think of love. What do you think it is? Is it a fiction that humankind made up to explain this weird chemical embalance of the brain, or is it something real?  Please explain your thoughts.

We'll learn together.

Of course love is chemical.<br />
<br />
Everything we as humans do involves our nerves and chemicals inside our complicated brains. This doesn't make it anyless real though.

I don't know what love is, but i HATE it.

I feel like this all misses the point. It isn't all chemical. <br><br>There is recognition. There is acceptance. There is betterment. There is growing. There is bravery. There is honesty. There is trust. There is nurturing. There is affection. There is inspiration. There is selfishness. There is selflessness.<br><br>I don't care if it has anything to do with chemicals. I know what I feel. I know what I want to do. I know what I fear. I know what I accept.<br><br>I throw what I know to the wind.<br><br>After losing myself. I discover something worth more than anything.

The notion of Romantic Love is purely a rise in the happy chemicals. Love can be something else though. It can be a mutual commitment, a person you get enjoyment and enlightenment from, and it can be purely physical joy. If you are asking if there is something meaningful, magical, or spiritually significant around love; my answer is that the only purpose or meaning is what we give it. No higher cause and no fate or purpose.
