Salam 

What’s your personal opinion? 

I feel it is Abit of both 

And depends on the circumstances 

May be it is logical and not illogical. The reason of this is that may be initially someone may fall for someone's physical appearance which is not love but desire. Love is something else that is to say, a person in whose presence you may feel no need of other person and you feel to be complete. Once Imam Jafar al Sadiq a.s was asked what is love. Imam Jafar al Sadiq a.s said that when a person sees another person whose inherent essence is same as that of inherent essence of another, these thing appeal to them and they feel attracted and hence feel happy in their presence. I do not know may be if I have correct translation.

Love and hatred. Love and hatred are not blind, but are blinded by the fire they themselves carry with them. 

Learning to love. We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from earliest youth; if education or chance give us no opportunity to practice these feelings, our soul becomes dry and unsuited even to understanding the tender inventions of loving people. Likewise, hatred must be learned and nurtured, if one wishes to become a proficient hater: otherwise the germ for that, too, will gradually wither.

Love and respect. 'o Love desires; fear avoids. That is why it is impossible, at least in the same time span, to be loved and respected by the same person. For the man who respects another, acknowledges his power; that is, he fears it: his condition is one of awe." But love acknowledges no power, nothing that separates, differentiates, ranks higher or subordinates. Because the state of being loved carries with it no respect, ambitious men secretly or openly balk against it. N

I think love is something you feel, however, it's not something you decide to feel. Love can just happen without you aiming for it to happen. You can involuntarily fall in love. But, it's up to you to make logical decisions about different things related to how you feel. When a persons in love, it's very hard to make rational and logical decisions so i dont think they're interrelated. But its important to use logical reasoning when your in love, even though it might be hard.

Neither. Love is a set of actions motivated by an emotional response to a decision. The decision or the emotion are at best nothing at worst dangerous, if not paired with the set of actions.

It’s both.

Loving someone is a feeling that happens differently for everyone. Sometimes it’s a slow burn (like when I fell in love with my SO, it wasn’t intense in the beginning.) other times it just hits you.

Deciding to love someone for the long run, through the ups and the downs, is logical and emotional.
