I have been counseling men and women for the last 44 years. There are many concerns people bring, but most of them are related to their desire to have a relationship where they can feel loved and where they can share their love. There are many types of love and learning them can help you expand your opportunities for joy and happiness.

According to psychologist Robert Sternberg, there are three distinct components of love: Intimacy, passion, and commitment.
Intimacy is the experience of warmth toward another person that arises from feelings of closeness and connectedness. It involves the desire to give and receive emotional support and to share one’s innermost thoughts and experiences.

Passion refers to intense romantic feelings and sexual desire for another person.
Commitment requires decision making. A short-term decision involves whether or not one actually loves the other person, while the long-term decision involves a willingness to maintain the relationship through thick and thin.

7 Little Known Secrets for Finding True Love

I have been counseling men and women for the last 44 years.There are many concerns people bring, but most of them are relatedto their desire to have a relationship where they can feel loved andwhere they can share their love. There are many types of love andlearning them can help you expand your opportunities for joy andhappiness.According to psychologist Robert Sternberg, there are threedistinct components of love: Intimacy, passion, and commitment. 
Intimacy 
is the experience of warmth toward another person thatarises from feelings of closeness and connectedness. It involves thedesire to give and receive emotional support and to share one’sinnermost thoughts and experiences. 
Passion
refers to intense romantic feelings and sexual desire for another person. 
Commitment 
requires decision making. A short-term decisioninvolves whether or not one actually loves the other person, while thelong-term decision involves a willingness to maintain the relationshipthrough thick and thin.Sternberg has identified seven different “love styles” based on thepossible combinations of intimacy, passion, and commitment in arelationship.
1.Empty Love
When there is commitment, but no passion or intimacy. These arecouples who are just hanging together, but have lost the fire of love.
 
2.Foolish Love
Love where there is passion and commitment, but no intimacy isfoolish. We see this where people fall instantly in love and have awild weekend together, but then regret it in the light of morning.
3.Liking Love 
When there is intimacy without passion or commitment, we have aclose friendship. Sometimes hot love becomes liking love whenpeople have been together a long time. Many people mistakenlyfeel that the “love” their partner, but are not “in love” and decide toleave. It’s often better to recapture the passion and commitment.
4.Romantic Love
This is the opposite of “Liking Love,” since there is passion andintimacy, but not commitment. We’ve all felt this kind of love in our youth, just beginning a relationship, or when we’ve been burnedand not ready to commit.
5.Infatuation Love 
Here we have passion, but no intimacy or commitment. We justwant to feel the excitement of sex and don’t want to feel tied down.
6.Companionate Love 
This style has intimacy and commitment, but is short on passion.Again many couples in a long-term relationship begin to feel theyare married to a sibling. The key here is to recharge the passion.Try something new. Revitalize yourself. Too many men I knowthink there is something wrong with their 
wife
, when the realproblem is that they have lost passion for their 
life
