Am I in Love?

The Oxford Dictionary’s definition of Love is: “an intense feeling of deep affection, tenderness, warmth, and intimacy.”


The same dictionary defines Attachment as:  “a feeling that binds one to a person, thing, cause.”


When we are in love with someone, of course, we have attachment to them. However, if your relationship is missing the wonderful qualities of love described below, it is only attachment.


You want to spend your life with someone where the characteristics of love prevail.
