Philos=brotherly, or friendship love

Eros=Romantic, sexual love

Agape=Unconditional, all-consuming love

sturge (storge sp?) = old friends connecting after a long time... where things appear to pick up exactly where they left off... even if many decades intervened...

epithemia - overwhelming desire to give all (not sexual) (eg. sometimes newly weds exhibit this in pure form)

A:

Agape - having love based on Godly principle. It may or may not include affection and fondness. Yet, though not feeling affection, they do feel sincere concern for such fellow humans, to the limits and in the way that Godly righteous principles in The Bible allow and direct.

Eros - Romantic love. Love between a man and a woman and usually based on ones attractfulness or ones looks. The Song on Soloman is a very good example.

Philios - Having love for your neighbor, general caring and courtesy of others, looking out for one another (Where the city of Philadelphia gets its name.)

Storge - Familiar (family) love. A caring, loving bond between Mother and daughter, or father and son. This type of love may take time to develop, but is very strong.

Love is a complex idea and process. It has different definitions for different people, and indeed different uses by the same person for different things. For example, there is friendly love, brotherly love, parental love and romantic love; each person will have their own thoughts on what each is. It is not a lie, because you are the one that decides what love is for you.

There are many different kinds of love. There is romantic love, family love, and the love of friends and pets. Not all love has to be between a man and a woman.

There is no single Greek god of feeling. Different feelings had different minor gods associated with them like Hedone with pleasure and Eros with love.

The Greek god of love is Cupid. The Greek goddess of love is Aphrodite.

There is only one Hebrew word for love:noun = ahavah (ร—ยร—โ€ร—โ€˜ร—โ€)verb = ahav (ร—ยร—โ€ร—โ€˜)This word also means "like" or "fond of"Note: You might be confusing Hebrew with Greek. Typically multiple definitions of love are associated with Ancient Greek with words such as "philos", "agape", and "eros".

As the transliteration of the original Greek into English, 'philein' is the infinitive form of the verb, 'to love.' That is, this term's root-meaning is 'to love,' although it has numerous different meanings that may apply within different contexts of use.

Yes I think so...there is lust and there is true love. Lust is sexual and true love is well love...truelly.
