Love in the 21st Century

Is love in the 21st century something different than what it was in the 20th, or before that? Will it change as we move forward with time?

It’s only our perception of it which is constantly updated, changed or challenged. It might be difficult to explain, or it is actually fairly simply which is over-thought and overdone. If I have to put it:

love  /ləv/

An intense feeling of deep affection: “their love for their country”.

Feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone): “do you love me?”.


noun.  affection – fondness – darling – passion
verb.  like – be fond of – fancy – adore

21st Century Citizen

Well I suppose I should consider myself lucky to be alive in both the 20th and 21st century, and in that process two whole millennia.

So much defines our times, that can’t say where to begin. Technology, beliefs, lifestyle, practically everything. Hard to pin point to something in particular. Personally I would like to see how things were across various time periods (and different places at it). The European Renaissance and Industrial Revolution is something I would love to have witnessed.
