is romantic love a definable concept ?

i think there's a difference between romantic love and that kinda love we have for our family , teachers & our own selves but does romantic love have a definition ? i mean how do we know if it's romantic love or it's that other kind of love ?

  • May 3 2013: Romantic love is suppossed to be mutual, between lovers; it is hard to explain to someone who is not experiencing or has ever experienced it.
    But it has a peculiar soul tie between lovers, and the sexual attraction is there.

      May 4 2013: what if it's not mutual ? i mean we could be "romantically" in love with someone but they don't love us back , at least not romantically . should we call it love or stupidity ?!
      • May 6 2013: That's not love then. It's attraction. Love is mutual.
