What is love? Do we really know or not? Webster  a noun...deep affection and warm feeling for another. Strong sexual desire for another.

The Holy Bible says ,"love never fails, it suffer long and is kind; charity, love does not envy; love does not parade  itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things"(1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NKJV).

One common word for love in the Greek language was eros, which suggested physical sexual desire and not much else. Another word philos suggestd the esteem and affection found in a casual friendships. Paul chose these words and he chose a relatively rare Greek word for his definitive passage on love. This word agape, describes a love that is based on thea deliberate choice of the one who loves rather than worthiness of the one who is loved. This kind of love goes against natural human inclination. It is a giving and it is not selfless, expect- nothing in returns kind of love.  It is unconditional.
