Love is a critical ?need? for human beings.

Uncared-for babies become emotionally stunted and die without love. Unloved older people suffer from loneliness and deteriorate more quickly.

As social animals we crave love yet so many of us are our own worst enemies when it comes to finding it. This is an area for psychological research as well.
