You don't know what love is.  You just do as you're told.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

Do you guys believe in all that chemical stuff?  Was flipping thru the channels and came across this love study.  Apparently if a woman somehow gets a high dosage of oxycotin (sp?) she'll be attached to the man she's with.  Guys get another hormone (not testosterone..started with an s I think) which makes them want to protect the woman.  I find that interesting "attachment" vs. "protection".  But I don't think I buy into it.

I like to think there's more to it than that.

me too.  If it was that easy, then according to basic biology you'd be in love with everyone you have sex with.  If I remember correctly, that's when the hormones kick in (or maybe it's just from orgasms).

And it doesn't really explain why you stop loving someone - do the hormones just go away?

Maybe if you stop having sex...  :P

I think the chemicals play a large role.  Of course, it's also psychological.  Combine the two and voila: love!

According to the show I saw, we should be falling in love with anyone that  touches us because that's when us weak lil women recieve the highest dose of oxy-- whatever.   That should make for an interesting subway ride  :D
