    Understanding the nature of human feelings and emotions, including love, has always remained a subject of interest to psychologists and researchers. Love is one of the most basic emotions that, however, is not always easy to explain. For a long time, it has been believed that love is something that science is unable to describe.

    Theories of love

    There are several major theories that attempt to explain the nature of sympathy, love, and emotional attachment. One such theory was proposed by psychologist Zeke Rubin, who argued that romantic love consists of three elements: affection, caring, and intimacy.

    Different types of love

    Psychologists Helen Hatfield and her colleagues have identified two basic types of love - passionate and friendship love. Friendly love is characterized by mutual respect, affection and trust, whereas passionate love is driven by strong emotions, sexual attraction and anxiety.

    A model of love

    John Lee, in his book The Colors of Love, proposed a model by comparing types of love to a color wheel. He identified three basic types of love - eros, ludos, and storge - and three additional ones - mania, pragma, and agape.

    The three-component theory of love

    Psychologist Robert Sternberg proposed a model of the three components of love: intimacy, passion, and commitment. Different combinations of these components define different types of love, including passionate, friendship, and sympathy.


    The psychology of love is a complex field of study that encompasses various aspects of human relationships and emotional experiences. Various theories and models help to understand the nature and mechanisms of love and relationship formation.
