Cat - Bunny Love

Mash-Ups of Love

“There are all types of love in this world, but never the same love twice”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

What is this love thing?  The dictionary.com definition of love has a few versions:
-a profoundly tender passionate affection for another person
-a sexual passion or desire
-a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection
Love seems to be either an affection, a desire, or an attachment.  What of this?  Why does Fitzgerald say we can never the same love twice?  I believe that how we love somebody is a mashed up combination of the kinds of love listed below.  Did I miss any?  I'd love to add to this list.
