When love is shorn of its mystique, a rational explanation of it ensues, making this mystique seem superfluous, irrational, abstract or pointless. But the mystique is the apprehension of the fundamental- yet logically inaccessible- truth of existence, the impetus and basis of life. In this way, saying that love is defined as irrational is valid. I chaffed at what I perceived as the negative connotation associated with your use of the words "irrational" and "irrationality".
