: : : I am doing a paper on love would you happen to have a definition for Relationship love?

: : ...and we thought that the discussion on why a primate happened to evolve language was going to be tricky :)

: Piece of cake. Love, in my opinion, is a many-slendored thing, 'tis not hereafter, makes the world go round, looks on tempests and is never shaken, and is all you need.

Maybe this says a lot about me. I didn't understand the question. Is the poster (postee?) asking for a definition of romantic love...or someone who is in love with love? There are lots of kinds of love. This allows me to trot out some definitions from my Flip Dictionary:

love for your offspring - geneity, storge
love, Christian - agape
love as friends without sex - platonic
