I don't know why you're not fair
I give you my love, but you don't care
So what is right and what is wrong?

What is love? More specifically, what is love as mediated between romantic partners?

Love is a neurochemical reaction driven primarily by a select group of chemicals that augment sex drive and attachment for that is all love really is. It is a combination of neurotransmitters, hormones and peptides that drive a feedback loop of preference, reward, and - ultimately - suffering.

None of which are necessary. The veneration of romantic love puts it on a falsely deified pedestal. The reverence of love is naught but a lie.

Due to its neurochemical origins, one aspect to love is that it doesn't develop until after the brain has matured into and/or past a certain period. This period to which I am referring is, of course, puberty. Before this inevitable process, romantic love is largely inconceivable.

Love is a mass of unnecessary chemicals assaulting that assaults the brain with needlessly complex thoughts or desires. These thoughts and desires drive us apart, forcing us to feel unnecessarily. Indeed, when we consider children - those fortunate creatures largely untouched by this evil known as love - we can see a world yet untouched by love-induced conflicts, segregations and separations?

What am I talking about?

Love - or the chemicals that contribute to love - is the cause of many unnecessary conflicts. Many species develop intricate behavior to accommodate for their feelings of love. Elephant seals, for example, have different hierarchies of dominance and behavior. The territorial, testosterone-hyped variant invariably bullies the rest of its comrades all for the sake of holding dominance over the rest, and taking all prospective mates for its own. Elephant seals are not alone. Many species fight, kill and segregate under the influence of love-hormones. Love is the great divider. Even he who does manage to sate his hormones will only find disunity at the tail end of his journey.

Love has its quirks, but in the end, it is nothing more than a cruel instrument of pain and disutility.

The structure of debate was not specified.
The definitions were not specified.
The sides were not specified.

What is Con`s position in a debate titled "What is love ?"

Does that mean that He is against this question .

So in a spirit of a lyrics to a song "What is love" from Haddaway I accepted and continued in that style. But Suddenly Con decided to play on serious note and change the style of the debate by offering his definition of a love. This is lame. If you wanna have serious debate about love then make it so from the start by doing things I mention at the start of this text properly. Im gonna continue to play the game I accepted and gonna end the second round with:

Woah-woah-woah, oh, oh
Woah-woah-woah, oh, oh

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
It would've been more fun if you had humored me.
My lover's got humor, she's the giggle at a funeral..
I was born sick. But I love it.
Amen.

Listen to your soul, as Coelho might say, and you'll hear it whispering in agreement. What I have to add is to listen to your heart and you will feel how does love manifest.


Listen to your heart
when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart
there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going
and I don't know why,
but listen to your heart
before you tell him goodbye.

Alo, salud.
I don't know. What can I do? What else can I say...
Don't hurt me.

One thing I don't know why. It doesn't even matter how hard you try.
I wasted it all just to watch you go
Kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart

What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when
I put my trust in you.
I pushed as far as I could go, but for all this,
There's only one thing you should know.

I tried so hard

And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

Don't hurt me. No more.

Alo, alo,
Sunt eu, Picasso,

My heart beats the pain
Ohh, listen to me
My tears won't flood away, ohh, yeah

You look in my eyes, you will realize
I've been hurting, being mistreated
I'm a lonely fool, I've been cheated, baby, yeah

Don't hurt me no more now
Ooh, baby, baby, yeah, don't hurt me no more
Will you [Incomprehensible]?

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly
The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone
But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist deep in thought because when
I think of you I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter

And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear,
"Oh darling I wish you were here"
