Since we are on the topic of Love- Valentine’s Day recently passed. I was reading some articles on the net during my regular interval breaks when i chanced upon an interesting article-

What exactly is love?

I was drawn in by the description given by the anthropologist Dr Helen Fisher, who has been studying the subject for 32 years. “Love is the temporary insanity driven by hormones”. Love can be divided into three entities: lust, romance and attachment. These 3 entities are basically control by a whole range of hormones. And this production of hormones actually lead to good health and she continued to use bombastic words to explain…. Therefore, if one is married, or happily cohabiting, in the long term you will suffer from less depression and live significantly longer than those who are single, divorced or widowed. Some may protest violently to that statement. Right guys? heh. You can read more from the Independent.

After reading the article, i realised what she said actually made sense to me. It should, she took 32 freaking years. No life. oops. ok back to the topic, the 3 entities or stages are exactly what and how relationships work. Lust comes first, followed by romance and lastly attachment. Religious people may argue with me. But that will be another topic on anther day.

Well i want to add on. Its nothing scientific like Dr Helen Fisher. I believe love is the commitment of 2 COMPLETE persons. Either one should never change for the other. They should accept the person as he or she is. So fuck damn those lovey dovey dramas where the boy or girl would “我是愿意为您改变 , 因为我爱你.. 给我一次机会” bull shit man! Love is not abt changing for someone else. I would never do that at the first place and i would not want my future partner to do that too. I want to love her for the way she is. Ok back to my books. That was my 5 cents worth on love. No more sentimental side. 15 mins is up.
