10. strong predilection, enthusiasm, or liking for anything: her love of books.

Of course there is also love between friends, family, brothers, sisters... But, let us talk about love between two people...romantic love...What is love? Can it be described? Can it be broken down into a few words in a dictionary? or turned into a mathematical formula?
What is that crazy feeling that has made countless people lose their heads? What is that emotion that has been sung and written about throughout the ages?

Is it sharing common interests with someone? sexual tension? Not caring about someone's imperfections? Learning to compromise? A mixture of comprehension and lust?

What are your thoughts? What is love to you?
