I might not have time to write this. I've got to leave soon, as I'm having lunch with HatGirl then I'm going shopping for booze.
Anyway, the other night LaptopGirl emailed me this thing about a bunch of kids saying what love was. I replied with my own definition of, "Love is when a person's happiness is essential to your own happiness."
I didn't make that up. It's pretty much straight from Robert Heinlein. But I do agree with it.
Moving on to last night, I found myself talking with HatGirl and LaptopGirl about the different types of attraction. Sexual, friendly, protective, comfortable, romantic, things like that. I could probably, with a little more effort, list a dozen more types of attractions but, like I said, I don't have much time right now.
The thought that just jumped into my head was that I need to change my definition of what love is.
I think that love just might be when every possible type of attraction exists at the same time for the same person. That's why it seems so damn overwhelming and confusing.
I should expand on this entry, but I probably won't. It's a little too close to home for me.
