Triangular Theory Of Love

Triangular Theory Of Love

According to this theory, there are three elements- love, intimacy and compassion and a combination of these three elements define love in 7 types.

1. Liking is in the air

1. Liking is in the air

He/she is the person with whom you share your life, your happy and sad moments, they are really important for you and you love and care for the, but this is a love for a friend and not for a relationship.

2. Friends With Benefits

2. Friends With Benefits

Infatuated love is like lust it is for a short period, you get high for some time, and then you become normal again. You feel he/she is the world for you but reflect will you be with him/her in every point of life, are willing to take him/her fully yours?

3. Just committed

3. Just committed

This sense of commitment can be found in our families, you need that person, and he/she will be there with you in your future too then that is empty love where you don't have any love attractions towards them. You do not share your personal feelings with them.

4. A walk to remember style

4. A walk to remember style

Just a glimpse of him/her and you blush uncontrollably. You get that made for each feeling and life seems to get complete with him/her, but if you do not work out and plan for your future now, then this might last only for short period.

5. Intimacy and commitment results into companion-ate love

5. Intimacy and commitment results into companion-ate love

People who are in a long-term relationship can feel this kind of love. Intimacy and commitment are indeed important but passion is the strong glue which makes your bond strong. It makes you feel energetic and lively.

6. Fatuous love is the result of passion and commitment.

6. Fatuous love is the result of passion and commitment.

You have a strong feeling for him/her and you can commit almost everything, then it is a fatuous love. Everything works great between you both. You have an awesome sexual experience together too. You feel that "yes, he/she is the only one I have been waiting for!" You know everything about them and their likes, dislikes, habits etc. You dream to have a future with them, but if there is no intimacy, then all is in vain.

7. Intimacy, passion and commitment combine the strongest love of all consummate love

7. Intimacy, passion and commitment combine the strongest love of all consummate love

This is the love experienced when you accept the person with his/her flaws and faults as they are and you both are the only person you need in every situation in life. You always make great love, and whatever decisions you take together, you can stick to it. We all will wish to have this kind of love but is this so easy that it seems, yes, you can work hard to achieve this and you can, but not everyone can do this, so whatever you do give you full effort and see the magic.
