With Valentine's Day fast approaching I thought we could look at the word 'love'. The Greeks had multiple words for 'love' to avoid the confusion the English language seems to bring with that word.
Philia is a love; a form of affection based in friendship. Aristotle went into how this can be demonstrated in different forms in various styles of friendship.
This is the first of a series of the words used by other languages for love. Feel free to contribute or share some of your favorites!
The other seven loves: Agape, Ludus, Storge, Pragma, Eros, Mania, Philautia

All of us have our ow versions and interpretations about love. It doesn't really matter if it's short or long as long as you have the right understanding of this matter. But I still want to thank you for exposing such simple matter where everyone can relate to. People have always something to tell whenever love is the topic. Well, love is an interesting topic to begin with regardless of the form they may be talking about! I noticed that you have so many thing to tell about this matter!

Out of all this eight loves, Philia is definitely my favorite. Friendship or platonic love is a kind of love that is unique between two persons. They depend on each other and know that they both have a mutual understanding. They have similarities but also differences, yet they still click. They are not afraid to open up to each other and the other person is comfortable to express his or her feeling to the other person. This is just my favorite.
