CAN LOVE BE MEASURED?

Some argue that love can be measured by a number of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words “forever”. However, others argue that love is an emotion, it can’t be seen or touched but it is experienced differently from everyone`s hence it can`t be measured. Furthermore, it is said that true love can never be counted not with money nor time, with sacrifices made, how much love you give because true love can never be measured.

According to my own point of view, love can be measured by the feelings you have for the other person and it is only you that knows the feeling. Therefore, love is measured internally by an individual because it is subjective and personal. To add on, one can also measure love by a number of gifts she receives from her significant other and it is said that it is a sign of caring.  The idea of that one could measure love via their deeds is conceivable.

Love can indeed be measured by the length of time you have had with your significant other. However, this does give you an indication of a successful relationship. It is an indication that you are in a good relationship and no one would stay in an abuse one.

James Clear is of the view that the things we measure are the things we improve. It is only through numbers and clear tracking that we have any idea if we are getting better or worse. You can only measure what you put in a relationship.  Love is about what you put in. It is a feeling rather it is a choice.
