While there is a lot of mystique involved,"Love" is merely an electrical/chemical action in the brain. (a simplified explantion) In the early stages the brain secretes a neural transmitter not unlike speed. This is when you cant eat, cant sleep, miss work, think only of the person and make stupid decisions. As with Speed, the body can only take so much of this (about 4-5 months) then it emits a different chemical not unlike heroin. This is where you feel uphoric with a sense of well being and where everything is right with the world when you are with the person. Again, this can only last for so long (about 7 years...thats why they call it the 7 year itch in a marriage) and then it's nothing more than familiarity. Rarely does "love" last any longer.

Love to me is the feeling you get when your with a person who perfectly compliments you. I am aware that it's only an illusion, but there's something about seeing a couple married for 50 years who are still very much in love. I feel that it's partly a spiritual thing, also a friendship, also a connection of your energy with the other person.
