What is love?

Hello all, hope the new year is treating you well so far.

So, a friend and I have been having a random running discussion on the subject of true love. Now my last comment on the subject was that they way I see it, "true" or "real" love wouldn't and shouldn't make you say or do foolishness.

Now to be clear, I understand that when you are in love you may do silly things and goofy things like wearing matching outfits, falling asleep on the phone together, goofy stuff like that. But in my mind, goofy and foolish are two different things.

Goofy makes sense, foolish does not.

True love shouldn't make you hurt people.
True love shouldn't make you doubt.
True love shouldn't make you angry.
True love shouldn't cause you to lose friendships.
True love shouldn't make you cynical.

In my opinion true love, real love, should make you a better person, not turn you into someone you never wanted to be.

So that begs the question, what is love?
