Eros a passionate physical and emotional love based on aesthetic/sexual enjoyment
Ludus a love that is played as a game or sport; conquest; may have multiple partners at once
Storge an affectionate love that slowly develops from friendship, based on similarity and companionship
Pragma love that is driven by the head, not the heart; rationalised or cautious feelings
Mania obsessive love; experience great emotional highs and lows
Agape selfless, altruistic, and giving love

Eros/Storge

dislike Ludus/Pragma (as only lovestyles)

torn on Mania
love the passion of it
dislike the unhealthiness of obsession

I don't believe we choose which relationship begins as one flavour and ends in another...
our feelings, change, they evolve, and they wax & wane, and sometimes they fade away entirely.
So, narrowing it down scientifically to just one would be presumptuous and the findings surely unreliable... wouldn't it be so?

But! --- to play along~ ( *^_^^ )
I'd like them to all be storgic... all of the time... but, they tend to go through each level/phase, or every other.... and never in the same order, and often never to the same degree of severity, intensity differs depending on the partner and other circumstances, for sure! All very random! Which should make sense (I think), since our fates are not truly written in stone, energy is relative, and constantly fluid. as so our emotions!~ ne?

sorry to be complicated. ( ~ ~ ;)

but, that's just me... ~seagoat~

Storge and Agape for sure. If I feel the partner is unstable then Mania kicks in... Woops!

I'd probably get more Pragma if they asked different questions. After all I have a couple of dealbreakers.

Hehe, why? I couldn't care less what my family would think about my bf, if he'd be a good parent etc. To me he could even be an alien. As long as we work as a couple it's good
