Is romantic love an illusion, and if so, are you alright with that?

If you believe it is not, tell us why and if you know of any tips to keep it vibrant and alive.

Brilliant.
All our emotions are 'illusions', really. They are nothing but neuronal connexions in the brain and combinations of neurotransmitters therewith. There is no problem with that, as long as we are aware of it. It becomes but an illusion when we lose sight of the chaotic yet existent rodomontades within our heads.
Love means,
or you may say, when you're in love, with that particular someone, or whenever you look into a mirror and the first thing that comes to mind is that significant other, and suddenly the idea of her makes you like or love yourself that much more for loving her. That my friend is when you know you're truly in love.
