Fourth (and last) fractal of my four kinds of love series, the portrait of Agape:
"Agápe (ἀγάπη, agápē) means "love" (unconditional love) in modern day Greek, such as in the term s'agapo (Σ'αγαπώ), which means "I love you". In Ancient Greek, it often refers to a general affection or deeper sense of "true love" rather than the attraction suggested by "eros". [...] Agape is also used in ancient texts to denote feelings for a good meal, one's children, and the feelings for a spouse. It can also be described as the feeling of being content or holding one in high regard. [...]"

Probably the one that holds the deepest symbolic meaning for me personally. I've always felt like it's the way I feel and show love for a special someone. I am extremely committed, devoted and giving, other than deeply attached and caring; together with romantic feelings come feelings of respect, esteem and admiration. It does take me a very long time to fall for someone that way, though when it happens, it usually lasts for long and holds strong.

So yeah, I'm not going to address this to anyone in particular right now... maybe in the future. :nod:
