And while I’m firmly standing on the love is crap side, I’m really enjoying the debate.
Ultimately we are driven by far more primal forces than we acknowledge. Mating is the most primal of all. Love sweetens it. But do you ever question why we feel love? Is it because we’re too intelligent to just accept our primality? Love is a subconscious psychological sweetener because we’re too egocentric to accept that primal instincts are our reason for seeking a mate. Love is us fooling ourselves that there is a greater purpose. It’s our reward for fulfilling our biological purpose. Our gift with purchase. Love is bullshit. True bullshit, we just don’t want to admit it to ourselves.
