Thx folks for the great comments. It was very illuminating.

I had an instructor as a student who would always end the class with "what did you learn" question. Not a bad habit.

What did I learn?
  • There are no consistent definition of love, as it is a subjective, internal emotion that has no objective metric.
  • It's very situational and depends upon each person, as everyone has a different way of describing it.
  • It is felt differently, expressed differently and received differently from party to party
  • There is "in love" as a state of being that can erode and "love" as an emotion that lasts longer ; the two should not be confused
  • Poly people are really well read. The number of people who quoted other sources was pretty impressive
