Love is a feeling or emotion that we all experience from time to time. It can be romantic, based on sexual attraction, or it can be more general, as in a feeling of affection for someone. It’s a complex emotion, but it has a few key factors that make it feel so special and unforgettable.
Romantic or Eros Types of Love
When we think about love, we typically envision a romantic relationship with a partner. This is the most common kind of love that we experience, and it often involves a strong physical attraction between people. This is why people who fall in love are so excited to be with their partners, and they’re willing to do anything for them.
There are also other types of love, like a parent’s love for their children or our pet’s love for us. These are more less intense, but they still have a deep, meaningful place in our lives.
Another type of love is storge, or family love. This is a more mature form of love that requires trust and patience between two people.
Some people who are in storge relationships are more likely to stay with their partner for the long haul, and they can be very loyal and committed to each other. However, these kinds of relationships are more difficult and sometimes can be toxic.
The third type of love is altruism, or caring for others. This is an important and crucial aspect of healthy, fulfilling relationships. When you care about someone else, you are more likely to want to help them succeed and become a better person.
In a healthy relationship, everyone is able to express their needs and wants. This is why it’s important to show your loved one how much you care, as a way to build strong, lasting connections. Licensed LGBTQ+ marriage and family therapist Adrienne Michelle says that when you’re falling in love, you tend to prioritize the other person’s needs more than your own. For example, you might give them a glass of water before you go to work or pick up the soap that they use in the shower that’s sensitive to their skin.
A Love Poem can be a great way to express your feelings and show someone how much you love them! Start by thinking of the person you’re writing about and then write a short, sweet poem that reflects your feelings.
You might want to write about a favorite memory, experience you had together or a comparison between your love and something special. You can also include words that evoke your emotions, such as swoon or cherish.
When you’re in love, you often think about them all the time. You relive your conversation over and over again, you reread their texts or photos, and you’re constantly fantasizing about them and what the future might hold for them.
You might even start to create traditions with your partner, such as going on dates or opening up presents on Christmas Eve. This is a sign that you’re falling in love and it shows that you are serious about spending the rest of your life with them.
