Interpretations of love

Filed under: life,love,Theory — Cris @ 13:56

The Cris School of Relationships has now brought forth before you, dear readers, the different interpretations of that misused word ‘love’.

1. The duty-doers: They understand love as a duty they are to perform towards the people they are expected to. They mostly do it life-long, just as a machine that works as long as it has its batteries charged.

2. The companions: They need someone to take lunch with, go to the mall with and they think they love the people who could accompany them. When it is time to leave the place and find new people for lunching and malling, they fall in love all over again.

3. The crushies: Temporary. Everything is temporary for these fellows. When love strikes, it strikes strong and they think and dream and do all for the loved one every minute of every hour. But ouch, the clock doesn’t stay still and so doesn’t the love.

4. The floaters: They cry for you, they smile for you, but their love only goes this deep. They honestly believe it is strong, but the best they could do is sit and cry as they watch you drown.

5. The buyers: These people think that a certain crow won’t fly above money so that should mean money is love. To them, love means buying gifts and spending money on loved ones. Spending time with them? Nonsense.

6. The mothers: And of course, the creator, they say, could not be everywhere so landed our mothers on earth. People who are mother-like, when they love, they love. Call it a feeling that never goes away, that is always felt wherever you are and whatever you do. It has no definition, it is just there.

Ouch, we reach the magic number, which means it is time to end another lovely chapter in the Cris School.

  2. hmmm.. so yu din’t dissappoint yur reader! 😛

    7. The genuine ones : There are people who love genuinely, without any particular reason… Its a bond, an attachment with a fellow being. They are ppl who dont know to fake and they love unconditionally, yes there might be times when jealousy, difference in opinions, ego n all creeps in between but that doesn’t stop them loving… The genuine ones…

    • @Peekiri: That is what I meant my “The mothers”. It does not only refer to the mothers; it means anyone who loves you unconditionally and forever. But of course there are more categories like “The hug-tighters” (who believe love means possessiveness) and “The Dangerous” (who may kill for love and believe love means violence). But Cris School always stops at magic number 6 😀

  3. 1. The duty-doers: They understand love as a duty they are to perform towards the people they are expected to. They mostly do it life-long, just as a machine that works as long as it has its batteries charged

    THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND LOVE! PERIOD.
    Cris, LOVE .. A DUTY ?… YUCK !

    2. The companions: They need someone to take lunch with, go to the mall with and they think they love the people who could accompany them. When it is time to leave the place and find new people for lunching and malling, they fall in love all over ag

    COMPANIONSHIP IS ALSO A FORM OF LOVE!

    BUT THE ACT OF ESCORTING YOU TO A MALL/CINEMA/ UNNIAPPAM KADA DOES NOT QUALIFY TO BE RECKONED AS AN ACT OF LOVE !!

    3. The crushies: Temporary. Everything is temporary for these fellows. When love strikes, it strikes strong and they think and dream and do all for the loved one every minute of every hour. But ouch, the clock doesn’t stay still and so doesn’t the love.

    DIVIDE THE DAY INTO HOURS. HOURS INTO MINUTES, MINUTES INTO SECONDS, SECONDS INTO NANO SECONDS…..

    STRETCH THE SPAN OF BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS ! GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL MEASURES ! SAVOUR THE SUBLIME MOMENT !

    4. The floaters: They cry for you, they smile for you, but their love only goes this deep. They honestly believe it is strong, but the best they could do is sit and cry as they watch you drown.

    HMMMPH !…….. THAT TOO GOES FOR LOVE ??.. OH MY !

    5. The buyers: These people think that a certain crow won’t fly above money so that should mean money is love. To them, love means buying gifts and spending money on loved ones. Spending time with them? Nonsense.

    A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TRULY IN LOVE THIS WAY !

    6. The mothers: And of course, the creator, they say, could not be everywhere so landed our mothers on earth. People who are mother-like, when they love, they love. Call it a feeling that never goes away, that is always felt wherever you are and whatever you do. It has no definition, it is just there.

    UNCONDITIONAL, UNBRIDLED, SELFLESS LOVE ! LOVE ONLY BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHIN ELSE OTHER THAN LOVE !!……….. LOVE LIKE NATURE ! WHEN LOVE IS YOUR NATURE ! NATURAL LOVE !

    • @muralee: wow thats a reply in detail, thanks :-). I do not say they all qualify, but those are the ways some people understand love to be; hence called interpretations.

  4. Hey Cris,

    Some love doesn’t die, no matter how many years of separation. Some love doesn’t give reason or logic. Some love doesn’t mean living together. Some love doesn’t mean taking possession.

    Some love goes beyond definitions. It’s a matter of hearts connected forever, beyond oceans, mountains and people.

    Ah, love!

    • @Sabin: Agree to the first few points. But is it always a matter of hearts connected forever? I like to believe love could be more subtle than that, and yet be the most wonderful feeling :-).

  5. I like your school, Cris!
    this is what I call a school of good ethics.
    if you say you stop at 6, you stop at 6. I like that! 😀
    way to go!

    my by-the-way-2 cents of wisdom: Love is way too over-rated, anyways!

    • @usha: you are a future teacher at the school, dont forget! Love is over-rated? Well yea to an extent and I feel the word is thoroughly misused or over-used! Anything and everything is called love!

  6. @usha
    ‘LOVE’ is NOT overrated! NEVER !
    it’s your interpretations, which are tailored to suit your expectations ‘out of Love’ that derives your conclusion!
    I asked my girl a moment ago, what her interpretation of love is..
    ” love is so mean ‘n painful and it has to hurt before it turns out right” … is what her interpretation is ! Fair enough!
    So long as we are not resigned, to the school of thought that proclaims; being in love as futile, long as we sustain our faith in ‘Love unconditional’,notwithstanding the individual trauma our expectations out of being in love dragged us through; it will never be overrated!
