What is Love? -vvw

This entry is not about what love is. It is, in fact, about teachers who try to tell me what love is.

In my secondary school days, teachers used to conduct classes about love, sex and stuff like that. One of the big topics was the difference between love and infatuation and in some way, defining what love is. Now that I am about the age my teachers were back then, I wonder, who are they to tell me what love is? Did they have some spectacular insight into the subject?

The way they listed the properties of love and mere infatuation, you'd think it's some psychological condition with distinct symptoms to check against. Personally, I think it's more grey than black and white. One of the teachers told us, "think not whether you can live with that person, instead, think whether you can live without that person because you can live with anyone if you force yourself to". Well, I think you can live without anyone too if you really have to. In any case, the teacher told us that she broke up with her boyfriend upon comprehending that. Poor guy!

Sounds more interesting than my class. Our teacher flashed two slides on the transparency, one with male genitals and one with female genitals
