    What is the real reason between homosexual love ?

    It is the universal law that opposite poles attract each other. But in rare cases among human this universal law is incorrect.

    It is also seen in dolphins and monkeys so human culture is not the only place in nature that it is found.
    Homosexual activity could be a result of an attempt at power gaining in these animals, or simply pleasure, we don't know for sure but it is there.
    It is definitely a physical as well as a psychological thing and the fact that we see it in animals proves this.
    Despite knowing all this we can't define exactly what the real reason is for homosexual love, just the same as we can't understand the reason for heterosexual love. All we can do is observe and experience it.
    Love is an abstract term anyway, so it's difficult to define.

      Re Animals - its actually noted in about 1000 animal species. But I agree - all we can do is observe and experience it.

      Really? Wow, I knew there'd be more but these were the only two that I knew for sure about.

    Sit down and make a list of everything about yourself that you think is valuable and everything that is important to you. Now examine your list. Is your genitals on that list? Probably not. It is probably things like friendship and love, working hard, helping others, being funny or smart, etc. In the grand scheme of things our genitals, and even what we do with them, are relatively minor distinctions compared to the totality of who and what we are. They do not define our oppositeness or sameness. Two men can be very different while some men and women can be much the same.

    And of course opposites attracting is only the most basic of rules. Opposites attracting is partly what guides atoms in attracting to one another, but that isn't a simple equation. It is a complex dance of competing influences which somehow miraculously allows for the formation of everything in existence, including you.

    We (humanity) are a complex dance as well, not defined by simple patterns, and the magnificence of that complexity is the formation of all sorts of wonderful and amazing people and relationships.

    Love is love.
