As I wrote about fear I thought about love.

Love is a terrible word. I don’t like it at all. Eros and philos are much more useful words.

As a general rule of thumb I avoid the word, replacing it with something much more scientific. Eg I don’t love pizza, I appreciate the variety of flavors. Particularly the contrast of juicy pineapple to the crusty base.

Love is about as versatile as hot, if I said you were smokin’ hot, it’s extremely unlikely you would be on fire. Much more likely that I’m complimenting the way you appear and acknowledging the effort you went to in getting ready for a particular outing/event.
