puppy love

This Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to think about love. All the pink and red hearts, the candy, the flowers, the cards make this one heck of a colorful and sometimes costly day. But we love it. Right?

Tulips and candy!

Let’s begin with a dictionary definition(s) of love.

1 an intense feeling of deep affection : babies fill parents with intense feelings of love | their love for their country.

a deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone : it was love at first sight | they were both in love with her | we were slowly falling in love.

( Love) a personified figure of love, often represented as Cupid.

a great interest and pleasure in something : his love for football | we share a love of music.

affectionate greetings conveyed to someone on one’s behalf.


a formula for ending an affectionate letter : take care, lots of love, 

You, most likely, could add to these definitions. For now, I will stick with the simple ones listed above with the exception of puppy love. Gotta have some of that. 

Love this Blue Heeler Puppy!

I know, I know. That is not what is meant by puppy love, but I could not resist this little guy.

And, of course, we’ve all heard of love at first sight. According to Catherine Beham 58% of Americans believe in it; 50% not only believe in it, they say they have experienced it.


It does seem reasonable that liking (or not liking) at first “acquaintance” is feasible. Even loving at first acquaintance might be, too, but at first sight? Not so much. I suppose it would depend on one’s definition of love. For those equating love and lust . . . perhaps. But we’re all adults here and we do know the difference.


What do you think? 
What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?
