Love is an interesting thing. People have gone to incredible lengths to achieve impossible tasks in the name of love. People have killed and been killed as if on a whim because of passion and romance. Wars have been launched and entire nations born and destroyed because of this powerful human emotion. Learning to understand it can help you to better understand humanity.
When analyzing this romantic emotion one can claim there are fully six stages of love itself. Each one corresponds to a different time in our lives when differing emotions, memories and experiences begin to shape our reality and how we perceive it. Many people dedicate their entire lives to pursuing a relationship, and understanding why can be well worth your while.
