The poems "Aimless Love" by Billy Collins, "I like to see it lap the Miles" by Emily Dickinson, "Dust of Snow" by Robert Frost, and "Ode to my Socks" by Pablo Neruda each explored the various ways love is experienced in human life.

As an emperor to be, the young Marcus Aurelius was expected to be well educated, and was thus appointed the teacher Marcus Cornelius Fronto. Their relationship was unusual in that there were many levels of the power dynamics of a young emperor in training and an older, more mature teacher.

Pederasty was a completely acceptable, and in fact, culturally expected in Greek culture. It is a relationship between male Greeks in which a, mature, married man would take a youthful boy or young man under his wings and teach him how to be a Greek.
I would say that Mark Knapp would explain the phenomenon “Love at first sight” as the stage of initiating (pg.283). The reason why is that in this stage you make first impressions.

Robert Nozick gives quite a clear and relatively detached explanation of romantic love, its main purposes, and elements, as well as its limitations in his Love Bonds essay. I his view romantic love has three principal elements that must be present. According to Nozick, the first feature is a sense that well-being of one of the partners is directly “tied up” with another’s. In other words, when good or bad things happen to the person one loves, they indirectly happen to another partner. Furthermore, Nozick considers that both partners must abandon some of their autonomy.
