    Is love an emotion that is ever changing or an attitude that can be developed?

    I believe its both an emotion that changes and an attitude that can be developed.

    It changes because emotions almost never last. Every now and then, we feel different emotions for the same person-love,sometimes anger,hate even.

    It can be developed since hate can turn to love, anger to acceptance or the other way around.

    I believe it definitely can be a developed attitude.

    But I don't believe it's ever changing. Love is love, sure there are different types of love but love it

    I believe, as theseus says, it both an emotion that changes and an attitude that develops.

    It starts as an emotion as as you are with that person, your feelings develop because you begin to know that person better. Emotions are not mean to become states of being, with perhaps the exceptions of love.

    Whilst you are you are experiencing the emotion, the attitude of being in love grows and makes you aware of the emotions you experience smile

    Love is Love as God is God, you cant explain them you just believe in them.

    Love itself never change but our perception of people and things change therefore our emotion change but love itself never change, the degree in which we love and the things and people we love can change.
    We do have the ability to learn to love, we can develop an attitude of love where we learn to love.  You learn what you see.

    Love is an emotion.  I'm a pretty emotional kind of guy in spite of putting up the tough guy image.

    You can't fake love and you can' make yourself love someone.

    One can learn to be more understanding by asking oneself the why and wherefore of others' actions and by self-examination of one's own acts.  That requires a bit of discipline on one's part.

    Love can develop over time and familiarity and often does.

    It's one of those great mysteries of life.

    Love can be developed as an attitude subject to the condition that it is bound to be ever changing!
