    What Causes Love?

    This may not make sense, but Love causes Love.
    We all experience it everyday. Even someone like Hitler experienced love which many doubt. He had great love for his dog, Blondie.

    Love does not need a cause, it simply is because love is a living spirit.

    As in Romantic love? Chemistry, pheromones, - pure animal lust. And if you're lucky it lasts for over 20 years. It's amazing! Respect, compromise, equality and again - pure animal lust.
    Destiny, Fate, God, Karma - and pure animal lust = Love

    My husband still takes my breath away. And he feels the same way.

    I believe it is a chemical reaction. Certain chemicals are volotile together...others produce wonderful reactions, still others produce no reaction at all.

    Oxytoxin is considered as the love hormone. A study published in the 1999 July issue Psychiatry details the research.  The hormone is released by the body in response to stimuli which triggers the body to interpret it as love or some other intense emotion. 

    But personally, i'd like t think of it as coming from something more than just chemicals in the body.  On a spiritual level, I'd say God.  from a socio-motional level, i'd say the need to belong.

    Wherever it comes from I'm glad it's there.

    i'm not really sure how it is caused, but i believe you realise it when you figure out that you could never cause this person/animal ect pain or destruction. And maybe we are caused to figure this out in certain situations - for example my sister, i love her so much but one of the times that it really sank in was when she was in great pain and all i could do was watch, i felt connected to her pain. i don't believe you have to respect them, or any other feeling like that and i don't believe it is when you can't live without them - or you'd find husbands/wives hand-cuffed in the ex's homes, you love someone you can let them go - and you don't want to hurt them.
