Love is a broad collection of emotional behaviors and emotions characterized by intense intimacy, love, passion, commitment, and emotional care. It normally involves emotional closeness, caring, romance, affection, trust, and security, but it can vary tremendously over time. It’s often associated with a host of positive emotion, including excitement, happiness, life satisfaction, and ecstasy, but it can equally result in… Pain and suffering are other major categories.
Romantic love is the most common and intense form of love, often experiencing intensity up to the extent of falling in love with another person. Romantic love involves feelings of lust, like the feeling you get when you’re engaged in a very intimate and passionate encounter with another person. It’s an intensely personal and individual experience. However, this type of love is not necessarily considered healthy. Many times, people confuse romantic love for being infatuated or obsessed with another person.
Although feelings of infatuation and obsession are common in relationship, they can be healthy as long as they don’t develop into unhealthy relationships. These unhealthy relationships are often characterized by dishonesty, betrayal, anger, fear, guilt, envy, fear, power struggles, depression, stress, isolation, withdrawal, desperation, competition, lack of intimacy, no intimacy, sex appeal, control, or a lack of respect for one another. When these factors develop in a relationship, the outcome is likely to be unhealthy, unhappy, or even traumatic.
Besides, the two brain areas that are activated during romantic encounters are not necessarily located on the same side of the brain. People tend to think that same-sex attraction is caused by the same areas of the brain, but that isn’t necessarily true. Men are just as capable of showing same-sex feelings as women do. Although some men do become consciously aware of their same-sex feelings, many others experience the same feelings without realizing it. There are also those who experience same-sex attractions but have never come to realize it because their brains don’t recognize it.
In addition, those who have strong same-sex desire may not connect their physical affection towards another person with emotional closeness. They may experience all kinds of affectionate feelings, but they may lack the ability to connect these feelings with their partners. When these opposite feelings become strong, it’s likely that a person will develop disconnection between themselves and their partner. This is when they start to believe that their partner is someone they just can’t have. They then begin to miss their partner, develop distance, blame them, criticize them, or begin an insecure, “clingy” behavior. Once this happens, the closeness they once felt between themselves and their partner has disappeared and they’re left with negative thoughts about their own self-worth and the relationship they’re in.
Love can only be shared between two people who are willing to give it – unconditional love between two people who are willing to commit to each other’s well-being through thick and thin. Those who choose not to give this unconditional love may very well lose the opportunity to experience true love, which is possibly the most important aspect of a relationship. While some people feel that being in a committed, loving relationship is simply impossible, the reality is that you are never out of your own resources. When you love another person – even if you’re sexually attracted to them – you can be sure that you are giving that other person the love and support they need to grow, blossom and prosper in their own life.
