  6. 6. Why do we need to be careful to choose a partner? <ul><li>Love is Transformative: Qualities of the one we love transcends in us, whether they are good or bad. </li></ul><ul><li>Love is Reflective: Love shows ourselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Love is a Search: Boys search mother’s quality and Girls search father’s qualities in partner. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Conditional & Unconditional Love ….. <ul><li>Romantic love: is a kind of ‘because of love’ , meaning I love you because you are smart, beautiful, talented, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Buddy love: is a kind of ‘if love’ meaning that, if you agree with me, cooperate with me, accept me, etc. I will love you; otherwise, may not be. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Conditional & Unconditional Love ….. <ul><li>Altruistic love: is a kind of ‘in spite of love’ , meaning that I love you no matter what, not depending on anything but based on my decision. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Conditional & Unconditional Love ….. <ul><li>The fact is, most love is, in some way, conditional. This does not mean that it is false or unproductive, just that is conditional. Nevertheless, purely altruistic love is not that common, yet it does exist. Many a parent can attest to this. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, there are other kinds of ‘love’ as well: clinging, dependent, obsessive, manipulative, exploitative, etc. – all unhealthy, based on personal needs, inadequacy, co-dependence, infatuation, need for security etc. Eventually, the unhealthy aspects of these kinds of love manifest themselves. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Conditional & Unconditional Love ….. <ul><li>However, since imperfect people do love, it is not surprising if the love they experience is also imperfect. The challenge in life is to love in the midst of all the imperfections: language, body language, miscommunication, misunderstandings, failures and mishaps, etc. Love is what everyone wants, especially if the experience frees up to affirm one another to the extent that both parties become more free. </li></ul>
