The idea of love

We often misunderstand the idea of love. It is not something you can experience in a single glimpse of a person or in a ¬†few moments. Love is an emotion. You don’t really ever fall in love, you grow into love. You grow fonder and fonder of a person when you spend time with them.

It’s no magic or miracle. Just an emotion that can turn the world magical and miraculous. If it doesn’t involve attachment and understanding that grew with time, it’s not love. It may be ¬†attraction, obsession, infatuation. Anything, but not love.
