Steven, thanks for the kind words. I have written abut Stoicism and love: https://howtobeastoic.wordpress.com/2018/03/02/stoic-qa-is-love-part-of-what-is-true-good-and-desirable/ & https://howtobeastoic.wordpress.com/2017/08/25/stoicism-on-romantic-love-and-commitment/ & https://howtobeastoic.wordpress.com/2018/06/14/stoicism-and-relationships-three-models/

Even though love is not one of the virtuous, it is a positive emotion (as opposed to lust, which is a negative one), so it can, and indeed should, be cultivated by the Stoic.
