The 6 Types of Love

Learn the six different types of love outlining others ability to love and the way in which they love comparing it to you.

1) Eros Love is a romantic love which involves physical attraction embodied in the rush of new love and the intensity it creates.  Eros love types are attracted by physical appearance and unrealistic expectations for anything long term. The physical appearance is the Eros lovers primary desire for another. Eros love often fizzles out quickly as it is best know as a relationship of lust and while intense with passion is hard to maintain. An Eros lover craves the rush of the first burst of romantic chemistry with less to no focus on the emotional needs and aspects of love.  The Eros love type is bacically addicted to the rush of an amazingly hansome or beautiful catch.

2) Pragma Love is rational and practical. The pragma type seeks a lover based on requirements that meet their needs. Pragma lovers choose partners through a checklist of qualities in the areas of; education, income, social status, parenting gene potential, and the possessions they’ve acquired. The pragma does not focus on the emotional aspects of love in their relationships they think and plan as to who will work the best and fulfill their long term goals.  There is little evidence of intense passion in this type of relationship.

3) Storage Love base their love interest on friendship. This begins with a strong friendship developing into feelings of stronger love and romantic intimacy. The area of sex is less important to the storage lover as they more highly regard common interest, caring compassion and a tight bond which they feel will stand the test of time. A storage approach to love is less about romance, if at all, and more about the bond of a time tested friendship.  Sexually needs are basic and not a priority with a storage love type.

4) Agape Love is one of a selflessness and family bond. It is known as “divine love” as it is self sacrificing and altruistic love.  As per the dictionary - Altruism is selfless concern for the welfare of others. It is a traditional virtue in many cultures, and a core aspect of various religious traditions such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Sikhism, and many others. Agape love is best suited for the love of God, Martyrs and Saints as a healthy romantic love requires a give and take where as Agape love is based fully on giving based on duty.

5) Ludus Love is one filled with a ever flowing source of fun and games with ludus love type. Ludus lovers crave excitement and the rush of adrenaline. A ludus love is more about the high attained when first forming a relationship. The ludus lover easily grows bored when it comes to the building and nurturing of a long term relationship. They love the thrill of the chase and that of a new conquest, not long term relationship material.  To remain in a relationship with a ludus love type you would be required to do daring things.  You can imagine the risky behavior needed to maintain the rush a ludus love craves.

The Different Types of Love

6) Mania Love is one of the fatal attraction scenario. This type of lover offers one wild and crazy ride.  The mania lover comes out of the gate appearing as an intensely romantic.  This phase is often used to insure the manic lover gets their mate.   A change often soon follows leaving you with a, who is this person type of wonderment.  A manic lover is possessive, jealous, controlling and dependent all at once. These characteristics point to an addictive relationship not a healthy romantic love.  The mania love type most often seems over whelmed with turmoil, exhibiting extreme over reactions, obsession, and control issues all of which can lead to stalking, threats and or even worse.

Finding My Perfect Match

Once you line up your love needs and abilities with a compatible match true love will be yours.

What a wake up call to realize the differences in ones ability to love. Now that you've read and learned about the different types of love you will easily identify others ability to love and to what degree. This eliminates so much pain and suffering.

We often dig our heals in, convincing ourselves we love someone we actually may not. It's more about rejection, feeling as if someone is rejecting your love and adoration drives us to succeed denying failure and working the mismatched relationship into the ground.

The truth of the matter is not that you have failed at love, in reality you have been barking up the wrong tree. This person is not rejecting you, they are doing only what their sociological make-up allows them, all the while not understanding or clicking with yours.

We are all different, not everyone can love just anyone! There is a lot of love in the world and this writer believes it can strike often. Do like the most successful people of the world, give it a go, admit when it's not working and move on the the next adventure. You'll know it without a doubt when it's the one and be so glad you held out for it!

Much Love and Success, Katie
