What is the definition of love?
Love is the most profound emotion we experience as humans. Did you know that 72% of people believe in love at first sight? The tricky thing about love is that we can feel it in a variety of different states–when we’re happy, sad, angry, confused or excited–and our attitudes about love can range from affectionate. Did you know that88% of Americans state love as being the top reason they choose to get married? It is very easy to acknowledge that the idea of love plays a pretty big role in our lives.
The ancient Greeks used seven words to define the different states of love we may experience:
- Natural Affection (Storge)
- Friendship (Philia)
- Self-Love (Philautia)
- Flirting (Ludus)
- Sexual And Erotica (Eros)
- Committed, Married Love (Pragma)
- Unconditional, Divine Love (Agape)
Though there are many different kinds of love to experience, the romantic and affectionate expression of love is what, on some level, we’re all seeking. The reason being that the majority of us find fulfillment through the comfort of a deeply committed and romantic relationship. And, fulfillment is all about filling The Love Bucket®
The Need For A Definition of Love… enter Lovematism
Love takes on different forms, and there are four that shine the brightest. We can each experience love in our own way, which is why defining the term ‘love’ is so complicated. Our culture makes us curious to know how others perceive love so we can determine how our love stacks up against that definition. Think about it: if you say you’re in love with someone, but your friends or family don’t see the chemistry, they may respond with “can’t see the love angle.” So what, exactly, is love?
Love is an overused word for many things: I love my dog. I love my shoes. I love my car. Love is used for many situations. How do you define something so uncontrollable and versatile?
What is Love? Sexual Dynamics in Lovematism
Chemistry is the physical attraction – sexual magnetism. From the scientific point of view, love is a powerful and permanent neurological condition. Love is chemistry, and it’s not something you can necessarily control. When you feel true love, the brain can release a whole set of chemicals, allowing you to experience it in different expressions. There is a difference between lust and love. Lust is a temporary desire fueled by an increased release of testosterone and estrogen–it lasts for a short time, then you stabilize, and it’s gone.
What is Love? Passion in Lovematism
Emotional connection of two lovers that has the sparks of passion keep the emotional rhythm and hearts beating together. This is sharing happiness, joy, fun of romance, caring, and compassion. There is a heartfelt love vibration, a coherent connection and you resonant together. There is a commitment to the relationship that lasts and is far beyond being dedicated actual relationship itself because the connection is so strong.
What is Love? Soul Mates in Lovematism
Whether you go to church or have a religious practice, some people direct their love toward God, or celebrities, and we can hold love for our neighbors, country and objects outside the relationship. It is through your shared experience of what you believe God to be that together you constantly work to develop and nurture this aspect of your relationship. When it comes to spirit, the soul mate connection is sort of a threesome.
What is Love? Sapiosexual Attraction in Lovematism
Lovematism represents the passionate bond of lovers. It is not just that you finds intelligence to be a sexually attractive quality but that you are enamored by the way your lover thinks, what they talk about, and how their mind works. This is not necessary intelligence in being book-smart but the way YOUR lover thinks, talks, and views the world. You must sync up mentally to have a deep connection.
Why Lovematism as the better definition of Love?
Lovematism embraces the four aspects that keeps the bond (think: embrace) with our lover. You need at least two of these aspects to have a relationship. If you have three it gets stronger. When you have all four you can weather most any storm and rise up to enjoy every sunrise together. Lovematism is the bond on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Lovematism fills The Love Bucket® in so many ways.
Lovematism is what we all want. For Valentine’s Day and everyday.
What is lovematism?
Lovematism bonds and connects two lovers in a unified link of trust, intimacy and interdependence. Lovematism enhances the dimensions of relating that are attained through the mind, heart, body and soul connections.
Deeply enduring love relationships are built on all four connection aspects of the bond of lovematism: heart, mind, body, soul.
4 Connections of the Bond of Lovematism
MYSTICISM OF THE SPIRIT
Soul Connection: Practices, like praying or meditation. Spiritual philosophies or way of living. Karma or soul purpose to be together. Soul connection of two lovers.
HYPNOTISM OF THE MIND
Mindset Connection: Attitudes, perceptions, tastes, approaches, subject matter of conversation, ways of thinking, levels of consciousness, and appealing to the imagination, intelligence and intellisense of the mind. Mind connection of two lovers.
MAGNETISM OF THE BODY
Sex Connection: Sexual dimension of physical chemistry, attraction, and energy. Sexual connection of two lovers.
EMOTIONAL RHYTHM TWO HEARTS BEATING AS ONE
Emotion Connection: Sharing happiness, joy, fun of romance, caring, and compassion. Heartfelt love vibration, coherence and resonance. Emotional connection of two lovers.
The bond of lovematism is universal. The intensity of the interaction strengthens the bond of lovers.
Lovematism transforms human potential
to manifest the divine.
Only two of the four aspects of lovematism are needed for a relationship. It is possible that you have three but the fourth one is a disconnect in an area you cannot compromise so the relationship is over or does not start.
The personal meaning of love will change with each different relationship. Some couples may not experience all aspects of lovematism. Their love is just as true and as meaningful.
Happy Valentine’s Day from The Love Linguist.

Nothing gets attention more on Facebook than a change in “relationship status.” Facebook’s algorithm puts the Facebook Relationship Status change at the top of the news feed and ticker.
Life event tops them all with Facebook Relationship Status: Married - Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan May 19, 2012
So when Mark Zuckerberg changed his Facebook status to Married Priscilla Chan on May 19th, every one of his 5000 friends and millions of subscribers likes his life event, “married.” There were over 1,331,673 Facebook users to give it a likes up at the time of this love bucket blog post. (almost triple the number of likes from 6 hours after Mark’s addition). That’s a lot of #likesup.
The Love Bucket is not about likes, it is about LOVE and filling the love bucket. Being in the spotlight is an added pressure on the already delicate experience of love, intimacy and matrimony.
We send the newlyweds every wish for happiness and lovematism.
According to the Associated Press, Zuckerberg and Chan’s wedding was planned for months, well before the IPO’s date was set.
Enjoying the mature approach to love as set out in the 5 Love Dynamics could be the sort of action to initiate a Relationship Contract for Dating Priscilla Chan in 2008 as reported by Sarah Lacy.
"On close inspection, these poses are actually rather sweet because despite Mark’s efforts to adopt what looks like a suitable cool, casual and non-traditional approach, with the undone collar and hand shoved casually in one pocket, all his more spontaneous gestures define him as a very traditional and delighted groom," she says. "His facial expression has broken out in a boyish grin and although he’s avoiding the expected public display of affection, when he walks his chest has an alpha, non-geeky puff. His bride is far more traditional, tucking her shoulder in behind his and tilting her head in a way that looks demure and compliant. The couple’s entwined fingers suggest subtle affection. For all their awkwardness, actually these two are entirely devoted." via Celeb News

Instagram’s Girlfriend said: “Mike was really touched,” she said. “His support throughout this whole process has really been a gift. Tolerating me when I’ve been cranky.” Trigger views both the physical manifestation of her skills and the skills themselves as the V-Day gifts, “[But] the fact that we have one more thing in common is the bigger gift.”
In the about section of Lovestagram, with reference to her boyfriend, Mike, Kaitlyn writes: “Over the past year and a half, Instagram has attracted over 15 million users and hundreds of millions of beautiful photos.
