The early monsoonal rains were tumbling down. Morning coffee was keeping the morning chill at bay. Without any warning, Katy Anders's post inserted a brain worm. By the second mug of coffee I was well on why of understanding the Concept of Love 

Monsoonal showers got you down? Fret not!

The story of Anna Nicole Smith and her marriage to Marshall is a story straight out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. In 1991, a very young Anna Nicole Smith was performing as a dancer in a Houston strip club, where she met Marshall, the ultra-wealthy (and very old) oil tycoon. Smith was a ninth-grade dropout, but Marshall began paying her $4,000 per month salary for “consulting.” He also showered her with lavish gifts, including cars and a 15-acre ranch outside of Houston over the next two years, asking her several times to marry him. By 1994, Anna Nicole Smith had divorced her husband and married Marshall. She was 26, and Marshall was 89. 

What is love? - There are many ways to define the concept of love

Triangular Theory of Love

Psychologist Robert Sternberg proposed a triangular theory of love that suggests that there are three components of love: intimacy, passion and commitment. Different combinations of these three components result in different types of love. For example, a combination of intimacy and commitment results in compassionate love, while a combination of passion and intimacy leads to passionate love.

According to Sternberg, relationships built on two or more elements are more enduring that those based upon a single component. Sternberg uses the term consummate love to describe a combination of intimacy, passion and commitment. While this type of love is the strongest and most enduring, Sternberg suggests that this type of love is rare.

My Thai wife for more than two decades tells me "Love You" (รักคุณ) many times a day. [ LOL, most days ]. She also says love is the most powerful force in the world.

We often mistake love as generally just being romantic and never really appreciating the other kinds of love that do exist.

Everybody Needs Somebody To Love ...


This love is the love that everybody needs to survive. It is that feeling of being cared for and nurtured. Some people would describe this as the type of love parents have for their children. This is so important it is high on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

Studies have even proven that people have died of a "broken heart"

This is a love between yourself and someone that is totally honest, open and comfortable. You really only have this kind of bond with a few people.

You might know a lot of people and be "friendly" with them in a group situation but they are not the best friends I am talking about here.

(The much anticipated love!) Most people experience this type of love many times in their life. It is when you see that person for the first time and he/she makes your knees go weak or gives you butterflies in your stomach.i.e. "Love at first sight”. 

Most people don’t even love the person they think they are in love with…they fall in love with the idea if being in love. This is more of a lustful kind of love, it wears off after a while and hopefully leads to...

This is the sincere love, the love that lasts forever. This kind of love comes when you have found the person you are destined to be with. Nothing can destroy unconditional love. It is like when you have an argument or disagree about something with that person and you realize that it doesn't bother you because the love you have for him/her overcomes everything. 

Puppy Love:

A childish, innocent temporary crush on someone that you don’t know well.

Maternal Love:
This term usually connotes love that is nurturing, accepting and protective. In actuality this love can also be given by a father etc.

Paternal Love:

This term connotes love that involves guidance and some authority.

Paternal love usually prepares a child to be ready for the outside world. Again, in reality this type of love is not gender specific.

It's a matter of degree and culture. I love my wife and dogs, which are bane of my existence but...

A core concept to Confucianism is Ren ("benevolent love", 仁), which focuses on duty, action and attitude in a relationship rather than love itself.

Buddhism, the term Ai (愛) was adopted to refer to a passionate caring love and was considered a fundamental desire. In Buddhism, Ai was seen as capable of being either selfish or selfless

I posted Vanity Fair’s Jennifer Lawrence newest photo on Imgur and posted the below description. The submission was remove with in 15 minutes, due to down voting

Jennifer Lawrence vents her frustration not just with the offending hackers but also with those—including people she knows—who viewed the images online. “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn't tell you that you could look at my naked body.” - as Jennifer Lawrence says while topless on the front page layout of a magazine

A DEA agent commandeered a woman’s identity, created a phony Facebook account in her name, and posted racy photos he found on her seized cell phone. The government said he had the right to do that.

I think it starts off a chemical thing - people are turned on - and then goes into security blanket mode pretty quickly.

I might be a bit of a cynic, though.

It was still cool seeing the pictures of you and yours, though!

Rod Sulik said...

I was questioning the very same thing about Jennifer Lawrence. "Don't you dare look at my leaked nude photos. By the way, here are some very suggestive photos of me for you to look at. I am not fully nude, but you can just use your imaginations."


I think the Spirit of Love (and the Spirit of Joy) are gifts...
that , like gardens, , need to be cultivated and nurtured.
The feral variety is more intense but often of brief duration.

My my, that Vanity Fair cover is quite suggestive. Throwing stones from glass houses, in Jennifer Lawence's case.

Katy Anders said...

I don't believe there's any contradiction between Lawrence releasing semi-clad pics and being upset about nude photos being stolen/posted.

If I give you a dollar, it doesn't give you the right to rob my bank account. "But you gave away a dollar already!"

If I have sex with someone, it doesn't give everyone else to have sex with me.


The logic that she has no right to complain about pictures being grabbed out of her account and posted because she has appeared in other pictures is absurd, and I don't believe that anyone actually believes it.
