Statement of the Problem ÐŽK

ÐŽ§Love Leads NowhereЎЁ

The authors have tried to explore that topic at a certain level of depth. The reason behind the change in the attitude the person who loves has been elaborated. How a person who loves behave differently? This looks like a small problem but in fact it is a very major problem of our society, although we have the same living standards and characteristic traits as they have.

Hypothesis ÐŽK

Hypothesis is an intelligent guess. A hypothesis can be defined as a "general principle proposed to explain how a number of separate facts are related." In other words, a hypothesis is an "idea about a relationship." In order to test whether a hypothesis is correct or not, we need to do research. Hypothesis is stated in general terms, so we need to define more accurately what we will be doing in our experiment.

In the hypothesis there are two variables, literally variables are any features of the world, which vary from time to time or across things being observed, and where the degree of variation can be measured in some way. In psychology, variables are dimensions of behavior or dimensions of potential causes of behavioral change (across time) or difference (across people). To be of any use a variable has to be measurable and there has to be some degree of fluctuation over time or differences between people or situations. The two types of variables in a hypothesis are:

Independent variable is the condition whose effects are to be studied.

Dependent variable is the affect of the independent variable on the experiment. Our Hypothesis ÐŽK

1) Null Hypothesis: - ÐŽ§Love leads nowhere.ЎЁ

2) Alternate Hypothesis: - ÐŽ§Love leads somewhereЎЁ.

The independent variable in our hypothesis is ÐŽ§LoveЎЁ and the dependent variable is ÐŽ§nowhereЎЁ.

Introduction ÐŽK

What is Love?

The mutual interrelationship of two or more creatures in order to create a more complex creature.

A passionate benevolent affection or endearment for another person, infused with or feeling deep affection or passion or when a one desires to cuddle.

A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.

Sexual passion or desire, amour, copulation.

Strong predilection, enthusiasm, or liking for anything.

How do we fall in love?

a) Philosophy

It is the basic instinct of the living being including human as well as animals

Is love a tangible thing? What is essentially 'real' and what is temporal? How it is something so powerful and universal cannot be seen or touched?

b) Elaboration

It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know it has begun. A thousand heralds proclaim it to the listening air; a thousand messengers betray it to the eye. Tone, act, attitude and look, the signals upon the countenance, the electric telegraph of touch - all these betray the yielding citadel before the word itself is uttered, which, like the key surrendered, opens every avenue and gate of entrance, and renders retreat impossible.

- Longfellow

Brevity may be the soul of wit, but not when someone's saying, "I love you" When someone's saying, "I love you", he always ought to give a lot of details: Why does he love you? How much does he love you? When and where did he first begin to love you? Favorable comparisons with all the other women he ever loved also are welcome, and even though he insists it would take forever to count the ways in which he loves you, you wouldn't want to discourage him from counting.

- Judith Viorst from "What is this thing called Love?"

c) WhatÐŽ¦s wrong with love then?

Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.

Sampling and Population ÐŽK

Our target of the sample size was 80-100 but we were able to collect around 50 samples only and 3 interviews but these interviews really helped us. The people participating in this questionnaire were ranging from the age above 18 to less than 40. The sample size for general public questionnaire was 50 and we were able to conduct all of them.
