Well coming from my point of view love is BS. I only believe in family love because family is family so that love starts the minute you're born. As for friends I mean depends maybe a couple of people and as for dating nah. In today's world of dating love is a bullshit with the world full of unrealistic imaginations of their ideal partner as well as constant trust issues as well as cheating. I did believe love used to exsist as in genuine love like during my grandparents era. Since then it's gone downhill and Noone even knows the definition of the word. This is talking from a dating perspective

Uhm,,, well I kinda agree. I still believe that you can fall in love and date the same person.
I think the difference between 'now' and 'then' was that now we have a lot more freedom in who we date, how, what we do, who can work or own a house or a car, etc. This also creates some confusion as not everyone is on the same page, a lot more people can express their individuality in a lot more ways.
In British/European history for instance there has been a much more rigid structure for who dates who and how and why, not to mention gender roles were more strongly enforced then.0

Honestly the idea of "romantic love", "perfect loving couple", and "soulmates" has been sold to us in many forms (television been the number one seller). The truth is that love is a chemical trick done by our brains. When you hear someone say "I saw him and my heart was going crazy" is really the brain sending a signal to the body that there is a potential mate for reproduction. We have learned to relate feelings like butterflies in your belly, sweaty hands, sudden shyness as the result of attraction/ feelings for another person. But we rarely consider that our brain is only tricking us, and that those are not feelings of love but a signal of a potential reproductive mate. That's why I have a hard time believing the "Romeo" actors in many tv shows/movies since men in real life will never act and "love" that way...
Anyway, I do believe in appreciation for the family and friends. The time and dedication that is shared with them creates bonds of appreciation.0
