It's good to talk to a fellow artistic-masochist (I think it makes us principled ). I have a lot of rules myself.
So this discussion is tricky because we do have to define exactly what is a love song and I'm entirely to tired to go through that right now. But a lot of my problem does have to do with defining LOVE itself, as there isn't a definition or at least it manifests itself in many ways. I think we can agree that our culture treats love like many other commodities, as something to own to possess to acquire, and I think music's role in this is important and must be considered (usually that role is reinforcing the problematic yet popular narratives).
But anyways, like you, I definitely do appreciate quite a few love songs. But I am absolutely never trying to write one lol. I'll leave that for the younger songwriters
