    Would love to hear your opinions theories and personal experiences on this question. So what is love Is it real? Is it fake? What's your opinion, what's your theory, what's your experience?

    Depends whose love.

    Since love cannot be measured it cannot be compared objectively.

    I believe in most cases where love occurs in the world it is mere affection far gone.

    Love is when one person is always giving to the other. Over time this love grows more and more, but this is only true of the giver, not the receiver. Only if the receiver is also a giver does the love grow too.

    In other words, if i keep giving you i will love you more and more and if you keep giving me you will love me more and more.

    But between who. Or to whom. I feel many kinds of things I could call love. At least to other people.

    I disagree. That could be all sorts of things. And sometimes people love even without giving.

    Love=affection

    We get used to people and begin to feel affection which can be confused with or interpreted as love.

    Merriam webster:
    ": a feeling of liking and caring for someone or something : tender attachment : FONDNESS"

    Madame Bovary came to mind. Though one can't say she dodn't give anything to his lovers and husband but she did give very little. And yet I don't suspect that she loved very much.

    Love is just a series of chemical reactions.
