FAITH DECKER, SOPHOMORE, ASU

How would you define the state of falling in love?
Absolutely terrified, blissfully ignorant and exciting all at the same time.

Do you think there are different kinds of love? How do they differ?
Of course. I think there are several different types of love. The love I have for my family isn’t necessarily romantic love, but a very caring, sort of protective love—loyalty almost. The romantic love I feel for my boyfriend is different to the love I have for my friends, which is protective and loyal again. They are very different.

Do you think the ability to love differentiates humans from other species? Why or why not?
A dog has never hurt my feelings, I’ll just put that way. I think because humans have the ability to hurt you back, it’s stronger and you [build a]relationship over time. My dog has never been upset when I walk through the door. Animals’ love is unconditional and they don’t have the opportunity to break your heart. They also can’t talk to you about your feelings.

How would you define the state of falling in love?
The state of falling in love is a feeling of bliss. You don’t think about a lot of other things in your life, like certain issues. I feel like they are still there, but it makes [it]a little easier because you don’t really think about them too much. You are distracted by the person you are falling in love with. You are just consumed by that one person. You want to spend time with them and be with them.

Do you think there are different kinds of love? How do they differ?
The different types of relationships we have differ between people: mom and son, husband and wife, roommate and roommate. Everything varies depends on which type [of relationship]it is.

Do you think the ability to love differentiates humans from other species? Why or why not?
I think it really would depend on what animals we are talking about. As humans, being the most cognitive animals in the world, we definitely have a far greater capacity for and more complex love.
