That's entirely subjective. Your definition completely ignores huge components of romantic love, etc. Someone else could also claim to define love as simply as possible and come up with something completely different from what you have here.

I would absolutely agree that "love" can be irrational, yes. It depends entirely on how you're defining it and in which context you using it.

ABE: The fact is that "love" (and all emotions for that matter) are nothing more than chemical processes going on in the brain. This is quite observable. So the question I have is why are we using an observable phenomenon to draw an analogy to something that is not?
