The chicken or the egg?

Which comes first?

Is it possible to start a relationship when there is no love involved yet, or does love always have to come first where relationships are concerned? If it’s the latter, then wouldn’t it be more of a crush, or a little-girl fancy, that starts a relationship, because the word love in itself is such a sweeping generalization? If a relationship were started without love being involved, then it wouldn’t be called a relationship, would it?

Thanks, Sofiya, for you have succeeded in thoroughly disorienting me.
