Abstrakt

This study aims to explore different views of romantic love and how this kind of love is presented according to three different theoreticians, Sigmund Freud, Elaine Hatfield and James Giles. Romantic love has been defined in multiple different ways which makes it a complex emotion to understand. The theories will be applied to an authentic love story in order to reach our own definition of romantic love based on the chosen theories. Another interesting issue arising from this paper is how culture influences the way we understand and practice love. Western culture and history lays the foundation of this study as it furthermore investigates how love is influenced by the late modern society. The case “Invisible Girlfriend” is a recent webpage which makes it possible to build your own girlfriend and thereby experience elements of a romantic love relationship. This option arises from the technology that dominates our late modern society. The chosen case then raises the question if our definition of romantic love can actually be practiced and felt virtually instead of physically? To what degree does this new phenomenon, virtual love, contain any of the concluded and most important elements in romantic love? This study aims to investigate both these issues and furthermore if there are other driving forces in the individual that makes it strive for this alternative.
