YourTango came up with a list of the 50 most influential people in the history of love, which seems like a tall task indeed, considering the subject’s long and storied history. The list is appropriately diverse, ranging from activists like Betty Friedan and Brenda Howard to cultural icons like Coco Chanel and Elvis to historical figures like Shakespeare and Jesus to Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
For the purposes of explaining the selections, YourTango explains, “You’ll find people from the past and present who have had a profound influence on both the concept of love—the way people understand and think about romance—and the practice of love—the actions people take to find, pursue and keep it.”
What do you think about their selections? Who else should’ve been included? I’m thinking Cleopatra.
