Hey everyone. For my PSY 101 class, we're doing a presentation on Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love. No, not this Triangular Theory of Love. It basically states that there are three types of love:

Intimacy - feelings of closeness and connectedness
Passion - physical attraction and romance
Commitment - commitment to sustain a long-term relationship

Different types of relationships contain varying combinations of these. Sternberg defines these different types as:

Liking - just intimacy
Infatuated love - just passion
Empty love - just commitment
Romantic love - intimacy and passion
Companionate love - commitment and intimacy
Fatuous love - commitment and passion
Consummate love - includes all three types

Our group has composed a couple of surveys based on this and we'd like to get as many responses as possible. If you'd like to help out, you can fill these out and leave me a comment or email me at resplendentposy@hotmail.com. All results will be kept anonymous and I will keep comment screening on for this post.

Survey 2

Also, if you'd like, you could fill out this survey about a current or past relationship, or use it to help inform you of what sort of things fall under the categories of Intimacy, Passion, and Commitment. If you fill it out, you can use a scale of 1-10 with 1 being Not at all and 10 being Absolutely.

Thanks a lot.
