Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love styles

Liking(Infatuation): Characterizes true friendships, in which a person feels a bondedness, a warmth, and a closeness with another but not intense passion or long-term commitment


Empty Love(Infatuation): Sometimes, a stronger love deteriorates into empty love, in which the commitment remains, but the intimacy and passion have died


Infatuated love(Infatuation): Is often what is felt as "love at first sight." But without the intimacy and the commitment components of love, infatuated love may disappear suddenly


Companionate love(Love): Is generally a personal relation you build with somebody you share your life with, but with no sexual or physical desire


Fatuous love(Love): A commitment which is motivated largely by passion, without the stabilizing influence of intimacy


Consummate love(Love): is the complete form of love, representing the ideal relationship toward which many people strive but which apparently few achieve

Lee's Six Styles of Love

Eros(Infatuation): "Love at first sight" based on "Chemistry" and a strong physical and/or emotional attraction


Ludos(Infatuation): Love that is played as a game or sport
