Love - it is strong feeling of affection, romantically or sexually towards someone.
When you would say that it is love? Does love really exist? If thus, can we categorize love? Are there such terms that corresponds for the love we feel?
I had read a book entitled "The Four Loves" by C.S Lewis. It is about the title itself the four loves. In my curiosity I had read the book but not at all, instead I focused on some parts that had caught my attention, the part describing what these kinds of love are.
The first one is Agape. This is an unconditional love that sees beyond the outer surface and accepts the recipient for whom he/she is, regardless of their flaws, shortcomings or faults. It's the type of love that everyone strives to have for their fellow human beings. This kind of love is all about sacrifice as well as giving and expecting nothing in return.
I do believe that we can find this kind of love in our parents, no matter what we are, or what we do. They still our parents and still we are their children. Parents love us unconditionally.
Why does love ignite unexpectedly between close friends? Is it because you always hang out with him all the time? Or is it because he is always there to comfort you every time you need a companion? Can we consider this as love? The answer is yes and this kind of love is known as Phileo. The phileo love refers to an affectionate, warm and tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone. This is the love of friendship, best friends, and the fellowship of being with those people you enjoy.
Then the Storge, it is a kind...
