“I’m not just falling in love with you. I’m falling into you. You’re an ocean and I’m falling in, drowning in the depths of who you are. It’s scary in a way but is also the most amazing thing I’ve experienced. You are the most amazing thing I’ve experienced.”
That is what total and honest couple love is. No reasons given, no questions asked that is why couples love!! Love is one of the most profound emotions that we experience. It is associated with strong feelings of affection, protectiveness, warmth, respect, and trust. It is difficult to define love, it is what you feel and reciprocate. Different people have their own definitions of love depending on how they experience love. I don’t like to call it a feeling, emotion or sensation, instead I think that love is a phenomenon that does make the world go round, makes you hear the violins play, makes you see the stars in bright sunlight and so on and so forth.
As a social animal, humans are bound to each other by love and affection. Love sees no limits to the depths of concern and attention. As a couple, we are accepted as we are, without being under pressure to prove our status. We can reveal the deepest of our vulnerabilities and compulsions. As a couple, you are loved even when you appear to be less than charming or maybe a little vile at times. You get to share your joys and sorrows and expend serious energy into inspiring discussions.
Love is an innate phenomenon experienced by couples who feel awed by one another and the mere presence of their partner gives a feeling of being safe. We fall in love with people who promise that they will in some way help to make us whole. There is gratitude at having found someone who seems so perfectly to complement our qualities and dispositions. The aspects we find desirable in our partners speak of what we admire but do not have secure possession of in ourselves.
Physical attraction is another very important reason why couple love. Sex delivers a psychological thrill. The pleasure of getting intimate with your partner can be a very stimulating experience. It’s not so much what our bodies happen to be doing that turns us on. It’s what’s happening in our brains: acceptance is at the center of it all. The blood pumps faster, the metabolism shifts gear, the skin gets hot and behind all this lies a very different kind of change: a sense of belongingness.
Why couple love doesn’t demand a reason but it just happens as many poets have expressed.
“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.”
