First round is acceptance.

love is merely a fake chemical response that has been bent by society over time. Our purpose in life is to reproduce and it's purely an instinctual reaction. Our perception may seem different than other animals. But from our perspective of course our brains would trick us into thinking that we're doing something much deeper.

Well to some people love is more than than that. To some it is a feeling of being happy and not wanting anyone else in the world more. Like I feel for my boyfriend.

See, have you ever heard of the term. "Love is blind"? It's a potent allegory for the concept that love is just a basic instinct. Sure, you can tell yourself that you have something special with your boyfriend, but in all reality, it's a thing that many humans have felt. Love is artificial, and unnatural. A biological inept excuse for your instincts.

Lust is about the shortest distance to the bedroom. Real love is about caring about your partner's feelings and wanting to treat him/her with respect. Talk to some couples who have been married at least 30 years and get their opinion on what real love is. Or, more specifically, older couples that you know who are truly in love with each other.
Finally remember this, love is a verb, not a noun. Love isn't a feeling, but a lot of work to keep the fire burning.

SHADOWFORKS forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: The conduct point goes to pro because con FF. Reasoning for spelling point, Con didn't capitalize the l in love in round one even though it was the beginning of the sentence. Pro had a more convincing argument because of the points that were brought up round three, they weren't rebuttaled because con forfeit, so they were left unchallenged.
