Aw Man I was too late to make the joke 😢
Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame.

I think the idea of love that we're fed by our cultural programming is, more often than not, not love at all but in fact chemicals that drive us to mate and thus further our species.

Love by its very nature is unconditional. It only goes one way, and it never expects anything in return. Once felt, it never dies - for if anyone has ever 'fallen out of love' - I would argue that they were never truly in it in the first place.

Interestingly, the Ancient Greeks had a far more comprehensive understanding of love than we do in our supposedly 'advanced' society:

Having one word for all the subtly different flavours of love seems like madness to me.

I agree with this.

It's the obvious response to that question.

What about unrequited love?. Is one side doomed to be in love without being loved back?

I would object to the highlighted text. So I've had several crushes in my 32 years of existence(none of which I've ever acted on). Once it becomes clear that my 'love' will never be reciprocated, the feeling slowly dissipates, and all the emotions-both good and bad dull to nothing more than an afterthought. 

Time heals, and time kills.
