To Love is Divine...Or Something Like That

I was having a conversation the other day about how much people like to talk about themselves. How, for a lot of people, conversation can really mean just waiting for the other person to shut up so you can bring things back around to your favorite topic...you.

Without thinking about it, I said "that's why people want to fall in love--so that some other person in the world is forced to be just as interested in them as they are." I was a bit surprised at myself, since I am generally a very romantic person. Had you pinned me down on the issue previously, I would have said that love is intrinsically selfless--that you accept someone else, warts and all, and dedicate yourself to something bigger than yourself; that of your relationship. But after thinking about what I said, I saw that you could also make the argument that love is actually quite selfish. You want someone else to want you and need you, not really to better their lives, but to give purpose to yours. People seek relationships all the time to fill the voids in their own lives.

So, generally speaking...love--is it selfless or selfish? Be honest, peeps. No points for shining things up.
