What is it that you love about the person you love?

January 25th 2008 12:02
Is it the Who or the What?

Jacques Derrida

Wikipedia link

(a french philospher renowned for having initiated the Deconstuction philosophy movement) asked that question in an interview when prompted to reflect on the nature of Love.

If you consider that emotions are all but chemical reactions in the brain, releasing some kind of hormones or other and initially provoked by external stimuli, somehow Love finds itself a little demystified.

But still, if you're asking yourself what love really is, i hope this will help you as much as it did for me.

I think perhaps it's an illusion, but one which females are especially fond of. Which does make life difficult.

It's funny how all my female friends are really fond of anything to do with romance until they find themselves pregnant in the kitchen and with no time or energy to pursue any of the dreams they were really yearning for when younger.
It's not that it's an illusion that is a pity, it's the conditionning that male-female get from the crib that's totally outrageous.
Everybody seems to find so "natural" when actually it needs to be thought about much more...
Thanks for the discussion Krystal always nice to share!
