I made the film Love Etc. because Jonathan Tisch, my executive producer, inspired me with his vision of New York City and love. My producing partner Jeffrey Stewart and I put his idea on paper and gave it form, and that is how Love Etc. came into being.
I was also inspired to make this movie because I am in love with New York City. Unlike any other place I have ever lived in, New York is where I feel most at home. It was the perfect city to "cast" the film, with the visual backdrop of five boroughs, 300 square miles and 8 million people. If a filmmaker was ever going to examine love "in a petri dish," so to speak, I cannot imagine a better city to do this in.

The title of this blog SHOULD BE "5 Tips to Live the Love of Albert and Marion". They are so connected at a soul level that it brought tears to my eyes. These two really embody what love is, and I only hope that I am blessed enough to grow up and be like them. They have a love for each other that transcends time, space, age, gender, mental conditions, life conditions and even tasteless food at the senior center. They love each other and that's a fact. It's epic love.
If you want epic love, these are some of the best tips I know that apply to men and women.
1. Fall in Love with a Soul, Not Just a Body
This is much easier for women to do than men. It's been said that men get turned on when they see a beautiful woman; women get turned on when they hear a man who cares about them and they feel can safely meet their needs. How many times have you seen a knockout woman with a guy that is less than knock-out? That's because women are not as visual as men. Given that this is a blog on Oprah.com written by the guy from TheDailyLove.com, chances are most of the folks reading this blog are female, but this information is vital for men too. If you are looking for that real soul-piercing love, you have to first love a person's spirit, then his or her body. Because as we get older, bodies change, get older, fatter, wrinklier, and sometimes they don't work as well as they used to.
This is why it's important to be not only with someone whom you have chemistry with but also, most importantly, with someone who is your friend. Sex is sex, and lust fades. But love and friendship will go on forever. You can have both—passion and friendship—but the deeper the connection as souls, the deeper the passion too.
