    It's difficult to define love since there are many different types. I "love" pizza but it's a fickle affair.

    Come on, Beth. You know you only.'like' pizza. It's not like the little frozen sausage and cheese biscuits I buy. I do love them.

    Love isn't only humans reaction. I wish I were the man my dog thinks I am.

    He/she might think you are a particularly tall and an ugly dog but he loves you anyway. I wish my ex-wife had felt the same.

    Another man's opinion:

    "Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
