Define "Love"

Was what Snape felt love?
What about Bellatrix? Does she love Voldemort?
Does Cho love Harry, or does she just miss Cedric?
How about Lavander and Ron?

All of these questionable pairings and more can be discussed here, and what I'm really curious of is this. In your own words, how would you describe love? What is love? (not what it isn't)

Re: Define "Love"

No, No, No, and, No.
Snape felt love that transformed into obsession and stayed that way.
I'm not sure Bellatrix is capable of love, but I don't know enough about her.
Cho had a teenage crush, just like Harry did.
Teenage crush x hormones + social pressure = Lavender and Ron

Re: Define "Love"

I believe snape did love Lily
As far as bellatrax i think it was more fear/respect, and possibly a slight infatuation
As for Cho, no i don't think it was love for harry or cedric

Re: Define "Love"

Love is already an obsession. Snape loved Lily platonically.

I think Bellatrix loved Voldemort but it's not romantic love I suppose. Respect love if there is such a thing.

Others are teenage love, they pass over a year or two maximum.

Snape did not love Lily platonically. Lily loved Snape platonically.

Agreed. I do believe, though, that Snape's guilt, both while Lily was alive and afterwards, drove his quite innocent love to become something of a crazy obsession and a need to put Lily upon a pedestal.
