Love could be a complex word and act that need to be clearly understood with intents.

To love is to suffer. Not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer.
Love is a complex set of emotions, behaviours, and beliefs associated with strong feelings of affection, protectiveness, warmth, and respect for another person.
There are different kinds of love known: Agape, philio, erotic, to mention but a few.
Agape love is the unconditional, selfless, generous, unending, parasitic (in the sense that one person is the giver and continues to give regardless) type. This is the kind of love God shows us. It does not matter what we do, He would still love us. This love cannot be shown by humans. I stand to be corrected, it is not easy to come by in man.
Philio love is the one shown in a family, usually between parents/mothers and their offsprings, siblings, spouses, friends. It could be a little bit synonymous with the agape in the sense that families do not turn back on themselves, whatever the storm that rages. A mother would always love her children, more than the father would, at the expense of her welfare and being. Mothers are quite priceless and show a next-to-none attention, care, love and emotions, to cap it up.
Erotic love is the sensual kind of love. The one that is driven, ruled and ordered after the dictate of the flesh. The sole aim of this love is to have, in most cases, carnal knowledge of the opposite gender. Ever wondered why a young man/woman runs after you for a period of time and the moment he/she gets that fleshy satisfaction they disappear into thin air as vapour or better still you mean little or nothing to them?
It is imperative to carefully choose the recipient of one’s love in order to feel loved in return. As it is not easy to “unlove” whoever you have once loved.
