Because it is the famously sweet Hallmark holiday and I am feeling a bit silly, I went on search for a Taxonomy of Love. What better day than Valentine’s Day than to dissect and tear apart what others see as mystical and ethereal?

So off to Google I went, and here I come back with my tail between my legs in failure.

I found the Taxonomy of Tea, the Fish & Chips Taxonomy, and let us not forget the taxonomy comparing the minds of cat people and dog people. On second thought, maybe we should forget that. Dogs rule.

But no love. No taxonomy of the woes and sorrows, bliss and joy of romanticism. Come on, you genius brains. Put all that mental muscle to work on important things. Sheesh.
