Love is a collective group of feelings and behaviors typically characterized by emotional intimacy, passion, commitment, and affection. It entails close caring, proximity, affection, protection, trust, and attraction. It is typically associated with a variety of positive emotions, such as happiness, exhilaration, vitality, life satisfaction, and joy, but it may also cause negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, resentment, fear, humiliation, embarrassment, or boredom. Most people use love in a relationship to enhance the quality of that relationship. It motivates people to work harder, gives them a sense of security and belonging, and often fills them with hope and confidence.
In today’s hectic world, romantic love continues to be a source of motivation and inspiration for individuals, couples, families, and groups. Studies indicate that well-being and positive emotions are positively correlated with one another. Individuals who are in romantic relationships have been found to be in higher physical health, have greater financial resources, make more friends and have a sense of social responsibility as well as control over their own body and emotions.
People in romantic relationships experience an enriched view of themselves and another person, forming a rich emotional experience. People in such relationships have reported that sharing their love with another person forms a connection that gives them both an inner knowing and inner knowingness. In fact, a study conducted by Dr. Mary Calderone, a professor at University of New Mexico, found that romantically involved college students had stronger emotional ties and friendship connections than nonromantic students. These students were also found to express more compassion and use humor and other positive emotions to cope with stress in their lives.
Another ancient greek word associated with passion and erotic love is “eros.” The greek word “eros” literally means “to move.” This word, which appears in the bible as well as many other ancient languages, describes a form of love when one or both partners are very sexually attracted to each other. In ancient times, people in both greek societies believed that erotic love was something that a man acquired by winning the woman over. However, modern medical science has shown that there is nothing physical or genetic about humans’ sexual attractions, therefore, anyone can develop a erotic love for another person.
A further ancient greek word related to passionate love is “kairomones.” This word, which appears in ancient poems and hymns, described ingredients that were used to simulate the smell of a lover’s breasts. Those ingredients included frankincense, myrrh, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, myrrh, oleander, sassafras, nutmeg and myrrh. Kairomones were often used to attract a lover to a man.
The storge card game also contains an important ingredient that can help people in their romantic relationships. The storge card in the pack is the only card in the pack that can actually be used as a tool towards seduction or agape. The storge card features the letter “K”, with an X underneath it that represents a special event that took place between the two lovers. The lover on the left hand side of the card will represent themselves while the lover on the right hand side of the card will show how long they have been together, how “in love” they feel with each other and how much they have in common. These ingredients all relate to storge, which is the ancient Greek way of describing relationships.
