Nice feeback all,
And in the end it may not really be important if everyone has a single (or very similar) definition of love. But I think many problems arise between people simply because they are not clear on each others definitions/understanding. There's a certain 'assumption' that hides in the shadows. Of course we all know about assumptions
So these two explanations/descriptions are both interesting & similar takes...

So here it seems we have an approach that your love - or loving, is very much a 'choice'.
But is it ? Really ?
Do you think it would be possible to throw that switch 'off' - to 'choose' otherwise - to stop loving those who you feel love for ? Granted you might 'choose' to stop certain expressions of it if you were forced to - but could you intentionally cancel what you feel in your heart ?
Because if not - then this love thing is something more than choice.
So now what ??????
