Question of the Day

I was watching this documentary last night, Americans in Bed, which features a bunch of couples talking about love and sex and parenting and infidelity and stuff, and one of the things they were asked to talk about was their definition of (romantic) love. As we were lying in bed last night, I asked Iain how he would define love. He replied, "Admiring someone so much you are moved to behave selflessly toward them. That's the best I got at 12:30 at night." And then he kissed me and fell asleep.

I thought that was pretty good, for 12:30 at night or any other time.

So: How would you define love, romantic or otherwise?
