The society in which we live in is governed by rules. The most common rule is the law of cause and effect. It is based on what one deserves. In the workforce,if you work an hour, you get paid for an hour of work for example. However, true love is not governed by cause and effect it is a gift and can not be earned or persuaded to be given by manipulation. This makes love by definition unattainable by any other means accept by free will uncoersed by the one who loves.
