    That assumes that one can tell when he or she is in love.

    I think terror has the capacity to be much more profound given that it can have much more far reaching consquences on your life than love can.

    Fear and hate are the strongest emotions one can have. You tend to be more defencive twards things you fear and generaly this defence serves for a perpose. Keeping you alive. When we love we let your gaurd down, think everything is fine. Then when you or the other person gets hurt you don't know how to coup with it.

    fear, hate, love, can be pretty powerful, but right now boredom is ascendant.

    Explain why you think this is so.

    Hahaha. I guess it can. But I'm sure everyone has some happy memories of the way love has made them feel at one point in time. Even you Anakha :p

    I doubt I've ever been in love. I'm sure I've been convinced I was at the time more than once, but I doubt it was real.

    Love has the ability to make people do incredibly stupid things and to turn people into jibbering morons. I'm like that all the time, so it's hard to tell. :cheesy:

    Nope. I doubt it because I was young and stupid and looking really, really hard for it wherever I could.

    I don't think anything, I just picked the opposite perspective to help stimulate the discussion, oh, I mean... what annie said

    or, I guess I can BS now

    hmm, a lack of profundity in love, well the way I understand a profundity, love doesn't seem to fit, its hard to explain this, but I'll try, when something is profound it is something deep, intricate, but love is very simple, and I would say shallow, but this is also hard to explain, its just there, it isn't something you have to delve for, it just happens, and while profundities are often referred to as intellectual accomplishments love seems quite the opposite

    that made no sense, but I will give you 3-4 posts worth of people ripping my inanities to shreds

    Ahh, but lets say hypothetically that you never feel something stronger then that again, would you believe then that you were in love?

    I believe in varying degrees of love. Sometimes it's a very strong feeling, sometimes not so strong. It doesn't have to be so black & white.

    That said, I don't think it's the most profound feeling a human can have. Any emotion when taken to an extreme can easily rule over all others.

    Nope. I'd say I was infatuated. But I don't measure my emotions against others that I've had. I don't think love is defined by what I've had or haven't had before or since the time in question.

    Fair enough. Do you believe then that you may never be in love? And if you are, how will you know that it's love?
    Not jumping on you or anything, just interested in your thoughts.

    I think it's certainly possible I'll never be in love. I've never found a female yet that I think could ever arouse such feelings in me yet. And I dunno if I'd know cause I've never felt it. I'd imagine if it's as strong as people say I'll just know.

    Also, I don't think love just hits you, I think it grows slowly. If it ever happens to me I'll probably never notice it until it's too late and then I'll come to that realization.

    does it grow slowly or does it take you awhile to realize its there?

    don't know much about love, never been in love, (i'ma high school student i mean comon) the feeling i take seriously is anger, mostly because i'm german and irish and it can make for a pretty bad face busting various things smashing explosive rage cocktail (just ask the 3 foot long hole in my wall) :grrr:

    Both, I think. I don't think love just jumps on you like one second you're not in love and then suddenly you are. It develops.
