It's purely a mental state, and of course such mental states exist.
It's like asking about "honor" to a samurai in feudal times after his lord was defeated, at which point he might respond by plunging a short sword into his stomach and making an L-shaped cut, spilling his bowels and working the sword upwards to his rib cage. His excruciating death would be proof enough to me that some deep notion of honor existed, so deep that one can define his/her own life through it.
In the same sense one could place such value on love that it becomes real that way. It's all shaped by personal and social values. Traveling the world, you don't see this kind of Hollywood and fairy tale form of "true love" everywhere. It might be attached to some sense of tradition, of family, or preserving wealth and property, of forming alliances between two houses, etc.
It comes in all kinds of shapes and forms. At the heart of it is some strong sense of "commitment", as with any value we hold dear. True love might be true commitment, as simple as that.
Probably most of the time, it'll be blurred to some degree with sexuality with no clear-cut distinction between "lust" and "love", since it originates from those roots of mating and reproduction.
I don't really believe in "unconditional love" either. It's either to profess when untested. A person who backstabs another and laughs at them can probably lose their "unconditional love". Again it's a mental state, at the heart of it is commitment. Those who are really committed to the concept mentally will exhibit a great deal of unwavering devotion to the idea.
To do so requires placing a great deal of value in the idea. It's not magical. Someone can place a lot of value in just about anything. They might fall in love with their car to the point where they're willing to give up their life for the safety of their car. It's up to the individual and the strength and commitment he/she places into his/her values.0

I really don't understand you and I think SO differently from you.
Sex isn't dirty, sex isn't wrong and sex doesn't take away the pureness of love. I love my boyfriend, I lust him and there is nothing dirty about it. I never understood education that teach people that sex is dirty.
I answered 2 but really your poll is just confusing.0
