7 Types of Love But Only One Lasts Forever

What is love? In the 1980s, American psychologist Robert Sternberg developed the “triangular” theory of love to provide an answer. His theory explains that love is an interaction between 3 things: emotional intimacy, passion, and commitment. From this model, Sternberg later created distinctions between the 7 types of love.

If you find yourself between 2 types of love, remember that these classifications aren’t black and white. Some couples move in and out of the categories and evolve to reach consummate love; others might be perfectly happy living as companions or romantic partners. Achieving a certain type of love might be very important to a couple; others might prefer to take a more laid-back approach. It’s all about personal preference.
