Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.

That is quite a question, and of course the answer would depend on who you ask and in what sense we are talking about love.

Websters dictionary describes it as the following:

strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties <maternal love for a child>

attraction based on sexual desire : affection and tenderness felt by lovers

affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests <love for his old schoolmates>

an assurance of affection <give her my love>

warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion <love of the sea>

the object of attachment, devotion, or admiration <baseball was his first love>

a beloved person : darling —often used as a term of endearment

British —used as an informal term of address

unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another: as

(1) : the fatherly concern of God for humankind

(2) : brotherly concern for others

a person's adoration of God

a god or personification of love

an amorous episode : love affair

the sexual embrace : copulation

a score of zero (as in tennis)

capitalized Christian Science : god

For reference: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/love

I would agree with what websters says above.

Thank you,
Chris

Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you today.

Chris has given you the dictionary definitions of 'love', which are great, but I'm wondering if you are asking this question in regard to a specific issue you're having with a relationship, as I can speak to that for you.

If you can provide some additional details regarding what prompted you to ask this question and what your current situation is, I might be able to help further and shed some light on your own situation, if that is what you're looking for. Thanks!

Warmest regards,
Cher
