Why we Love!

Why do human beings make love?

First of all it’s the best thing that we humans can feel love. Now the answer is very complicated as there is not a straightforward answer. Love is a complex emotion that can be influenced by many factors, including biology, psychology, & social dynamics. In humans, love is thought to be influenced by the release of certain chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine & oxytocin, which can create feelings of pleasure, attachment, & bonding. Additionally, social and cultural factors can play a role in the development of romantic love & attachment. Love can be understood in different ways. Love can be understood as an emotional state, a virtue, a form of action, or a feeling.

Animals also experience various forms of love n attachment, although the specific mechanisms and behaviours may differ from those of humans. Some examples of animal love include:

  • Maternal love: i.e Mother’s love, many animals, including mammals, birds, some fish, demonstrate strong protective n nurturing behaviours towards their offspring.
  • Pair bonding: many animals form strong, long-term bonds with a single partner, such as in monogamous species like swans, wolves, primates.
  • Friendship: many animals form strong social bonds with other members of their group & may demonstrat behaviours such as grooming, play, and cooperation.
  • Sexual love: many animals engage in sexual behaviours that appear to be motivated by attraction & pleasure, rather than solely reproduction.

It should be noted that the ability & expression of love in animals can vary greatly between species, but it has been observed in a wide range of species.

Types of Love and its Feelings

There are different types of love, like romantic love, platonic love, love with family, and self-love. Each type of love is characterized by different feelings, behaviours, & expectations. In addition, there are also different forms of romantic love, such as passionate love, companionate love, & fatuous love. Passionate love is characterized by intense feelings of attraction and preoccupation with the other person. Companionate love is a deep affection and bond that develops over time. Fatuous love is characterized by a strong physical attraction that is not accompanied by a deep emotional connection. (fatuous love means silly or pointless love) There are also other ways to categorize love, such as by stage of a relationship, by cultural background, or by psychological mechanism.
