is love an instant emotion?

Monday, February 11, 2008

Love is an instant emotion.”

That’s what my friend recently wrote in her blog. Is it? Is love an instant emotion? Or is it something that enfolds through time? Do we know exactly when we fall in love? Does the falling happen in just one moment? Or does it comprise moment upon moment of being drawn to that one person? If love is an instant emotion, then what do we need long courtships for? What do we need the getting-to know-you, pursuing and relenting stage for? If we know immediately what we want, then why take time to make the decision? Why prolong the misery? Why postpone happiness?

Love maybe an instant emotion but it is also a lifetime commitment. It is not a fleeting, just-for-now feeling that easily fades away.

"Love is NOT an instant emotion. It grows and it is always a twofold process -- he loves her and she loves him too."
