Triangular Theory of Love
Sternberg’s triangular theory of love explores the different types of love: intimacy, passion, and commitment. It is more difficult for a relationship based on one element to survive than those based on two or more elements.
The different stages and types of love can be explained as different combinations of these three elements: passion, intimacy, and commitment. For example, the relative emphasis on each component changes over time as an adult romantic relationship develops.
Intimacy: partners who are high in intimacy feel close to their partner and have a strong bond. They also like, value, and understand their partners.
Passion: Relationships built on mutual romantic feelings, physical attraction, and sexual intimacy are typically the strongest.
Decision/Commitment: Acknowledging that you are in love and committed to maintaining the relationship are cognitive factors.
