What is love?

Love is different for everyone

Nora Creel, Staff reporter

Friendship and romantic love are two of the most fundamental relationships that human beings engage in. As social animals, most humans are naturally drawn to form bonds of affection with other people. Both friendship and love, however, are difficult to describe in words. 

Love isn’t just the bond between two lovers, or a bond formed between two friends. Love can be seen when you smile at a classmate in the halls, or when you hold the door for an old man/lady. Love isn’t  just a feeling, it’s an action.

A lot of people might not know that because we were taught growing up that love was a feeling only shared between a man and a woman and that’s far from the truth. Love is a word that can be described through actions and feelings, not definitions and vocabulary.

Between two or more friends love is what pulled them together in the first place. The love that caused two complete strangers to work up the courage to talk to the other. Either it’s from another mutual friend, or by ones doing, they were destined to meet each other and become more than just strangers. 

Love is a magical thing that is not even a 5 paragraph personal column. Either it’s from a concept made up by people, or something that even animals share. Love will always be ‘in the air’s for as long as we live.
