Indeed you often asked yourself what type of love you do with your lover?
Mainly there are different types of love but only a few we know or even don't.

Here are the types of love that you do...


The six different types of love theory is developed by John Alan Lee (Canadian psychologist) in his book colour of love: An Exploration of the Ways of Loving (1973) in which he used Greek words.

He defined different type of love in which he divided them into several categories-Primary styles [Eros, Ludus, Storge], secondary [Agape, Pragma, Mania] & Tertiary types of love.
  • Eros (IR-os) - Romantic Love
  • Ludos (Loo-dos) - Conquest/Playful Love
  • Agape (aw-GWA-pay) - Unconditional Love
  • Storge (STORE-Gaye) - Friendship/Familiar Love
  • Pragma (PRAG-ma) - Practicality/Enduring Love
  • Mania (MANE-ee-an) - Obsessive Love

It is a primary type of love. Actually, you have already seen this type of love, most commonly portrayed in Hollywood movies. Also known as "love at first sight", it is based on "chemistry" and a strong physical and/or emotional attraction.

This Type is used by those who see love as desiring to want to have fun with each other or to see love as a game and want to "win" as many partners as possible. The focus is on having fun in the moment/ludic love can become sexual addiction and therefore relationships of this sort tend to be very short.

This type of love grows slowly out of friendship and is based more on similar interests and a commitment to one another rather than on passion. The friendship in some cases can endure beyond the breakup of the relationship.

This love type is very practical and realistic. People who prefer this style approach their relationship in a "business-like" fashion and look for partners with whom they can share common goals. The attitude can become disdainful and toxic if one sees the other as a burden.

In this type of love, the individual is willing to sacrifice anything for their partner. They will remain faithful to their partners to avoid causing them pain and often wait patiently for their partners after a break-up. It is based on an unbreakable commitment and an unconditional, selfless love.

      6. Mania ( Means Mental Disorder) [Eros + Lodus]

This type usually flows out of low self-esteem and a need to be loved by one's partner. Lovers of this sort usually become very possessive and jealous.
