Now we just need to contemplate what homosexual love is, and why it blows my definition out of the water.

It's because you`re thinking of love as the effect, not the cause, in terms of propagation of the species. Since that is merely a result, not the cause, and substituting in my comment about the subjective nature of what people find attractive, the biochemical definition is valid.

English needs more words that mean "love" eh?
Latin has 3 (at least) "brotherly" "lust" and "spiritual" all get called "love" in English.

I love my cat! <(See?)



It's like Swedish, then, which has three words for "think", whereas English rolls several subtly-different definitions into that one word. Swedish has `tänka` (to imagine or hold an intent), `tror` (to believe something to be true) and `tycker` (to hold an opinion about something). Returning marginally to the actual topic of this thread, that last word can be used in the expression `tycker om`, meaning to like someone. "Jag tycker om dig" means "I like you" in Svenska.
