Great question! Let’s take a look at the different types of love and affection we are capable of giving and receiving. Can you identify with any particular one more than another?
- Romantic love is a deep emotional, sexual and spiritual recognition and regard for the value you have for the other person in your relationship just as they do for you in return. This type of love can last forever.
- Passionate love is more complex. It includes appraisals or appreciations, subjective feelings, expressions, patterned physiological processes, action tendencies, and instrumental behaviors.
- Obsessive love is a hypothetical state in which one person feels an overwhelming obsessive desire to possess another person toward whom they feel a strong attraction, with an inability to accept failure or rejection.
- Compassionate love involves feelings of mutual respect, trust, and affection while passionate love involves intense feelings and sexual attraction.
“IF you don’t have my books yet, or the audio version of them to soak in all this knowledge into your love life, then you’re missing out on A LOT! You owe it to yourself and the one you love to acquire this knowledge! I know I wouldn't live my life without it, and neither should you! Contact me if you have any questions about my books/audio.” — Bart Smith, Author
