What is Love Actually? Is it Really the Same As Intimacy?


What is Love Actually? Is it Really the Same As Intimacy?

“Love is a divine feeling that awakens our highest potentiality.” -Rumi

When we talk of love most often we think in terms of physiological and emotional bonding between human beings. But love goes beyond than that. It involves, inter alia, two brain regions, namely the parahippocampus and the amygdala, which are crucial for the creation and storage of memory and emotion. According to recent studies, romantic love engages the left amygdala while viewing sexually arousing images, and the right amygdala when viewing non-sexual images. In fact, there is a region of the brain which is exclusively focused on our emotions, which is concerned with storing and representing our feelings when we feel them.

As I see it, loving someone means being open to your partner’s needs, likes, dislikes, abilities and talents, as well as their opinions and dreams. The more you accept this fully the more fulfilling your relationship will be. True love means you let the other person make decisions about your feelings and you respect their ideas and tastes, even if you strongly disagree with them.

Of course, some of you may feel like lust, i.e. that you would like to sleep with your partner as soon as possible, regardless of his or her wishes. In this case, you have not found true romantic love because you have not agreed with your partner’s vision of the future. True love is a mutual effort, where one partner accepts the other’s interests, desires and emotions and respects their freedom. You do not feel like cheating when you sleep with your partner, even if you think that you would like to.

Lust, on the other hand, occurs when we are attracted to someone on superficial grounds, such as a person’s physical appearance or the way they talk, because of the strong sexual desire we have for them. When we have intense feelings for another person, it is this intense feeling which causes us to do things that would normally be considered immoral behaviour. It is not the same as love because our main aim is not to form a lasting relationship with this person but, rather, we are using these actions to fulfil an emotional need. It is not uncommon, nowadays, for young teenagers to behave like children, because they have not yet formed a clear and firm relationship with their parents or other adults. This is usually due to the lack of deep emotional feelings being expressed.

So, before you go overboard in trying to change your partner’s mind and make him or her to love you more, remember that love includes passion, desire, excitement and intimacy. These three are the foundation of any successful relationship and without these basic ingredients, there can be no true love. You must let your feelings and your partner’s feelings are expressed, even if you are afraid that you are being selfish or controlling. If you love someone, then sharing your feelings and being open with them is more important than controlling them. You must remember that if you try to control your partner’s behaviour, he or she will turn around and treat you like a servant instead of a partner.

Find Out How Academician’s Dilemma Can Be Solved

A need is a need for organisms to survive. Needs are often distinguished from desires. In the case of desires, a lack of what it needs causes an obvious adverse effect: a defect or premature death. However, if a desire were true, there would not be any need for any kind of government, as people would have no need for money. But this is not true, as needs and desires are different. Needs must be balanced against desires in order for a society to function.


A healthy life is not possible without a self-fulfilling need. A Dilemma is a false belief where one party believes it is required to do something in order to get something else, or achieve some desired end. A good example of such a dilemma could be the so-called Dilemma of the Academician vs. the Academician’s Friend. The Academician states that since his friend is successful he must therefore become successful himself in order to help his friend achieve the same degree. His friend states that he does not have the talent for studying and therefore he will not be able to attain the same degree as an Academician with less effort. Each sides believe that in order to attain their desired goals, they must stoop down and do what is required of them.

The predicament thus becomes apparent. The Academician must realize his mistake of thinking that by stooping down and doing what his friend wishes he can be a success too. He has to recognize his own shortcomings of his friends, as well. Only when each of them has realized his or her own limitations can the Dilemma be solved. Similarly, the human needs are also not limitless but can be satisfied by the existence of other beings who have better intentions.

All Dilemmas are solved when people come together in order to fulfill a common goal. For instance in social work, the Social Work Research Council has defined a set of seven universal needs. These need including the physical, social and psychological needs which are necessary in order to lead an individual to leading a productive life. Each of these seven needs cannot be satisfied by the existence of another person. It is only when the Social Work Research Council has made a declaration that all the seven basic needs of humans can be fulfilled by the existence of another person.

In academician’s dilemma, the first difficulty faced by most academics is the lack of money. The second difficulty faced by most academicians is the lack of time. The third difficulty faced by most academicians is their personal safety. The academician is likely to find it difficult to ask for grants and loans from banks in order to meet his basic needs.

The solution to this problem is the need for grants and loans offered by government bodies. This will help the academicians to meet the basic needs that he/she must make sure that these needs are met to attain success in their careers. If you wish to know more on how you can fulfill your basic needs, then you may contact the Social Work Research Council.
