  2. 2. <ul><li>Anything that gives pleasure… </li></ul><ul><li>Intense feelings of affection, emotion or state of emotion… </li></ul><ul><li>It is essentially an abstract concept, much easier to experience than to explain… </li></ul><ul><li>It is Universal and at the same time, personal… </li></ul>What is love?
  3. 3. How Thoughts Create Emotions by Gregorio Maranon <ul><li>Emotion involves : </li></ul><ul><li>1- Physical component </li></ul><ul><li>2- Psychological or mental component </li></ul><ul><li>The process: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Sensory Information is received </li></ul><ul><li>2. Amygdala reacts by sending alarm signals to adrenal gland </li></ul><ul><li>3. Adrenals send epinephrine & norepinephrine which activate sympathetic nervous system </li></ul><ul><li>4.

  5. 5. According to the theorist Erik Erikson : <ul><li>(Theory of Psychosocial Development Stage 6: Intimacy versus isolation): </li></ul><ul><li>(18-34 years old) after finding their unique identity (stage 5) </li></ul><ul><li>the individual seeks belongingness and results to engaging in a relationship with the opposite sex </li></ul>
  6. 6. Maslow’ Hierarchy of Needs <ul><li>Included in the third level are the needs for </li></ul><ul><li>friends & companions </li></ul><ul><li>a supportive family </li></ul><ul><li>a group, and </li></ul><ul><li>an intimate relationship. </li></ul>

  8. 8. Intimacy… (not what you’re thinking) <ul><li>Shared closeness </li></ul><ul><li>Bonding </li></ul><ul><li>Deep connections characterized by communication and trust </li></ul><ul><li>“ Knowing” someone (and, as we know, knowing someone is not fully possible… but you get the point) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Passion! ( now it’s what you’re thinking) <ul><li>Intense emotional desire; romance </li></ul><ul><li>Involves physical and sexual components </li></ul><ul><li>Involuntary and motivational </li></ul><ul><li>Dominates thoughts and behavior </li></ul><ul><li>Positive (as in ecstasy or joy) </li></ul><ul><li>Negative (as in despair) </li></ul><ul><li>Usually wanes with time </li></ul>

  13. 13. Realities of LOVE: <ul><li>not a bed of roses; much more like a rollercoaster </li></ul><ul><li>has to be sustained </li></ul><ul><li>It is a promise… </li></ul><ul><li>It is a choice… </li></ul><ul><li>It is a way of living… </li></ul><ul><li>It is a mirror… </li></ul><ul><li>… now let’s see how kids define love… watch this video clip… </li></ul>
