A life without meaning is one without those certain bonds developed with individuals, instead is a life of solitude. A feeling of loneliness, is caused by the search of an apparent “perfect love”. Singer states that this type of so called “perfect love does not exist on earth” (Singer, 13), so those striving for that love will never attain it. Striving for this love causes a social isolation from discovering the meaning of life. By isolating the bonds that have the potential of being created, we are blocking human natures intrigue to answer the question of the meaning of life, in relation to love or not.
Love at first sight is a delusive feeling. Although there are many people who will argue with this statement, it is true. Love can be considered as an intense feeling of deep affection (Merriam-Webster, 2018), which is a feeling that most of the time has to involve. People who have experienced an intense feeling such as love at first sight are mistaken. There cannot be love without knowing a person you experience your feelings towards to.

Love Love definitely is a feeling that encompasses not only the mind and body of two people but it somehow creates a bond between them. In fact, romantic writing bordered heavily on love between two people, thus giving rise to the belief that love overrides all other emotions. ‘love’ has been in the fore front of the society over the ages. The idea of falling in and out of love is not exactly new, it had to face umpteen challenges, obstacles to raise its pretty head, and prompt generations to be its followers! But the irony is ‘love’ and it is misunderstood and misplaced.
The union of both sexes is a notable metaphor in both “Symposium” and “Lysistrata”; however, the nature of the love between the sexes draws a distinction between both works. In Symposium, Aristophanes described how both sexes were so powerful when united; and when they were separated, human beings still strived to be united once more by any means. On the other hand, in Lysistrata the characters were already married and united; however, women found their true strength when they started a psychological war on their men. Even though both works drew the readers’ attention to the need for love, Symposium emphasizes the union of sexes in a way that the characters in Lysistrata will never reach; where love is not only about sex and physical attraction, but it’s also about a healthy relationship occupied with affection and caring. In Lysistrata, men and women were entangled in an unhealthy relationship; it was based on the objectification of human beings.

In the end, we must not give in to hate but rather give in to love. The love Romeo and Juliet had is what made their life worth living. Therefore, we must open our hearts even to our enemies to make sure our lives are worth
Romeo’s longing for ideal love is the primary driving force behind most of his actions, that reveal themselves as impulsive and stupid. In the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, mutual love and devotion are the main characteristics of Shakespeare’s ideal love. He also portrays the idea of lovers making sacrifices in order to be together, even if it means forsaking things that are valuable to their existence, including their lives. The individuals possessed by ideal love are not the only ones who are affected by it. In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s first reaction to Romeo’s drastic change of “love” was shocking : “Holy Saint Francis, what a
As a tale which revolves around a forbidden romance, it is no surprise that in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, love is a prominent theme. In this book, love is an overpowering force. It not only drives the plot, but also forces the characters to make powerful life altering choices. As a result, all the members of the play have their own distinct view of love, whether it be benign or tragic. While Romeo and Lady Capulet already have differing opinions on many topics, their views contradict most on the purpose that love serves.
While all objects may become legitimate objects of love, we must recognise that each object of our love can only provide us with so much happiness and satisfaction. Saint Augustine further argues that love becomes disordered when one expects more from the object of love than what it is capable of giving. Our love becomes disordered when the manner with which we attach ourselves to the object of our love and our expectations from this loving act exceed what the object of our love can actually provide us. He also cautions that disordered love leads to many, if not all, forms of human pathology. This tendency towards disordered love is common for fans, or people whose objects of love are celebrities, public figures, or people who are generally inaccessible to them.
