Unconditional Love in a romantic relationship? Is it really a thing or just made up words.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IN A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP? IS IT REALLY A THING OR JUST MADE UP WORDS 

COMMON YET SOCIALLY ACCEPTED DEFINITION

Unconditional love is love without strings attached. 

To love someone unconditionally simply means to love the person without expecting or getting anything in return.

It is love you offer freely. You don't base it on what someone does or will do for you in return.

Loving someone unconditionally may also mean loving the person irrespective of character or behavioural change patterns.

People of faith say unconditional love is a divine phenomenon. 

What then, is CONDITION? 

Condition refers to the situation which influence the way one carries about an activity. 

Example, you love your friend because you probably grew up and did things together, You love your parents or children because you feel they are you or an extension of yourself in another being or you have the same Genes or blood running in you.

You love your pet because it looks cute or some other reason. 

You love nature or mother earth because its your home and there is no place like home and wouldn't jeopardize it.

CASE SCENARIOS 

People help others they just met who find themselves in trouble or need some form of assistance. They get nothing in return and really expect nothing in return.

Even though some may argue that it gave them some form of emotional satisfaction. The mere fact that you could help someone in need makes you feel good.

So you see someone for the first time and suddenly develop emotions for them.

You feel attraction to them emotionally without even meeting them.

Well, things like that do happen all the time, not only in movies, but in reality. Some call it lust, others say love at first sight and proceed to call it unconditional love. Maybe they are right, or perhaps are watching and are being carried away by too many movies, reading too many romantic fictions or listening to too may love songs.

WHAT PEOPLE HOPE VERSUS WHAT HAPPENS

People say I love you for who you are and not what you are.

I Love you and want nothing than your happiness.

Don’t you feel good seeing someone you claim to love unconditionally being happy? Isn’t that a reward in return? 

The one thing we can all agree to, is that, the feeling of being loved wholeheartedly is both physically and emotionally therapeutic.

WHY THERE IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE A REASON 

Different people engage in romantic relationships with others for different reasons. Some claim they love their partners unconditionally because they love them without reason. The thought of unconditional love being a natural instinct which is cultivated or developed with time is widely held by many.

One basic or fundamental distinction from humans and other creatures is clearly the ability to reason. Out of reasoning comes rational thinking. The outcome of reasoning include intuition, concepts, judgment among others. 

WHAT THERE IS BUT CAN'T BE SEEN AND DESCRIBED/COMPREHEND

So one may call it love at first sight but isn’t there something in that person that might have struck a cord in you. The fact that you can’t really point out exactly what it is doesn’t mean there isn’t any. 

Our brains communicate with our surroundings in more ways than we can imagine. 

Therefore, that mystical communication may be the genesis of the concept that there is a reason for your emotions but its almost impossible to explain. 

So before you fill your thoughts with the concept of unconditional love ask yourself; why do I really love who I claim I love?
