    Love, Universally ... is a common "feeling" ... without gender or species barriers ...
    till we start confusing sexuality with love ...

    I don't think there is a gender bias with respect the emotional experience. How they handle it is different. I know because I have many platonic men friends who consider me as one of the boys and therefore speak freely in my presence with respect to women, the women in their lives.

    I'm going to answer yes to this, simply because I believe everyone experiences love differently. Everyone's experience of love is through their own perception filter, so no two experiences can be the same. Love is definitely an emotional feeling, but that feeling is not the same for everyone.

    I can't answer the question but it would not surprise me if they do.  During gestation, as a babies' sex is being determined, the brain is bathed in different chemicals (hormones and such) depending upon the sex.  There is a lot of clinical evidence that male brains are simply wired differently than female brains.  Certainly, there are a lot of similarities but it wouldn't surprise me if these differences in wiring change the perception and experience of love.

    The problem is that emotions and the experience of them are inherently hard to communicate to others.  We speak in commonly used terms of love, adoration, loneliness, sadness to convey how we feel but do those words actually convey how we feel.  It's like explaining colors to a person blind from birth.  How can we really explain how we feel, how we love to another person and know with certainty they understand?  This isn't even delving into the issue of men and women experiencing love differently as a result of social and cultural training during their upbringing.

    I think in the long run, this is an unanswerable question but it certainly is a great question that, no doubt, would spark some great debate!

    My opinion is that men experience love differently than women because it takes more for a man to love a woman because he is less nurturing than a woman.  Often women choose to select men who are in touch with their sensitivity but for the most part men are mostly attracted to what pleases his vision initially.  I think that men grow to love women more out of familiarity or the idea that it is time to settle down and chooses the partner he is currently with.  But at the end of the day, the man has to answer this question for themselves because every person loves differently whether they are a man or a woman based on myriad of life experiences.

    Definitly, psychologist study suggest, for guys, love is a logical thing, where for woman, it is an emotional thing.  Woman frequently, look at stuff like, how this man make her feel, where man look at stuff such as, whether she is attractive and whether she make a good wife and mother.

    I suppose so. I think men and women connect differently. I have noticed that men want to connect physically and then think about emotional connection. It seems like women seek emotional connection that might lead to physical connection.
