Resource: John Allen Lees 6 Colors of Love

15 May
  1. Eros- romantic love, chemistry, willing to be vulnerable. 
  2. Ludus- “players” strategic, play games, multiple dating at one time, not invested in intimacy or commitment. 
  3. Storge- storing up love, grows with time, come to care for someone deeply, intimacy and commitment. 
  4. Mania- crazy love, possessive, controlling, dependent, desperate, abandonment issues. 
  5. Pragma- planners, plug in partner here, online daters. 
  6. Agape- brotherly love, sacrificial love, divine love, difficult to maintain. 

When I look at these theories of love my relationships tend to be mania or sometimes pragma. I thought it was interesting when she said abandonment issues. I feel a lot of the feeling associated with mania love but try not to act on them. Because people generally don’t want desperate people in their lives. 

I'l love to hear your thoughts
