    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    David: That is probably the greatest truth. Most of us cannot so easily adhere to that!
    How's Houston, anyway? Haven't been there in two years and miss the unpretentiousness of it sometimes *sigh*. I know that sounds pathetic but Dallas is just so droll. And I really miss Marvin Zindlers rantings about slime in the ice machine and rats in the kitchen
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Love is just a nice word which people believe in and dream about, but there is nothing real behind the word.

    Besides, don't come here and start ridiculous topics such as true love. You should know that most people here are lonely programmers that will never get a girl, nor any real friends. And they have no interest in such topics, and no ability to experience these dreams for real, because they are honest enough to admit that it's a lie.

    Even if this were the truth, why destroy our dreams ? What to live for, if not love ?

    I 'm not sharing my opinion specifically to destroy people's dreams. Nor would I ever speak for the sole purpose to try to support people's dreams. Such unimportant reasons don't drive me to reply.

    To try to change people's opinions regarding love, after what I consider to be the truth, is not my intention. I'm just trying to get interesting replies from people like you, replies that makes me wonder and figure things out.

    "Love is just a nice word which people believe in and dream about, but there is nothing real behind the word."

    Biology says otherwise.

    Although "true" love (in the sense that there is one person who you will love more than anyone else, and vice versa) is make-believe.

    Before this debate can continue in a sensible manner, we need the same definition for the word love.

    I made the assumption based on probability for my first reply in this thread, that everyones view of love in this thread is a misunderstanding of the scientific truth.

    I was referring to the type of love that media provide us with. Because I've never "seen" love anywhere else.

    Biology says otherwise.

    Although "true" love (in the sense that there is one person who you will love more than anyone else, and vice versa) is make-believe.
    Where do you draw the line for "true" love and love? And why is "true" love a make-believe while love is not?

    I cannot make such a distinction, and therefore I view love, and all variants such as "true" love, as a misunderstanding.

    I draw a line because there is a very distinct difference, love as in the emotion felt as a strong bond (separate from sexual attraction) between two people exists, it is what a huge number of poems/songs/plays/paintings/music are written/drawn/composed about.

    True love in the sense that there is ONE specific person "out there" who is you're "perfect" partner is a myth.

    Love is love, and thats all you need, all you need is love, all together now, all you need is love, love, love is all you need..... oops sorry hehe got carried away =).

    What exactly do you need it for? My strife is not that simple.

    People are different, thus they need different things depending on their goals.

    Heh well, i was just quoting the Beetles, however human happyness and love are two emotions that are very intertwined.

    So basically, people need love for happiness? Personally I don't find happiness very interesting. All these different words seems very similiar.

    ... True love <- Love <- Friendship <- Happiness ... Nothing ...

    However simple it might seem, each lie seems to be derived from another lie. In the beginning there is nothing.
