    Hani Henry, associate professor of psychology at AUC’s Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology and Egyptology, says that Robert Sternberg’s psychological theory addresses the most common reasons we fall in love, which are: passion, intimacy, and commitment.


    A basic friendship is a relationship that involves a person falling in love with another person for intimate reasons. It lacks commitment and passion. "Besides developing
    click here with someone, a lot of people seek intimacy for self-enhancement; it doesn’t necessarily have to be for sex," said Henry. "Sometimes it’s self-serving. Everyone wants to be loved and cared for. Women want to feel their femininity, and men want to feel their masculinity."

    A perfect example of intimacy captured is Adele’s Hi. Adele calls her ex-boyfriend in the chorus and vents her pain about the relationship. She explained that many years have passed, and she hasn’t done much healing. "Her lyrics are magical and speak for a lot of people who want to have an emotional connection with anyone or a short-term relationship," he said.


    It is normal to fall in love with someone because we feel strong feelings or desire for them. Passionate love can be developed from feelings that result in sexual attraction, romance and physical interest. "When you see someone you like, you are captivated by something that draws you to that person," explained Henry. "The attraction is not just physical. There is also a fascination for the hair, eyes, body."

    Infatuation is a feeling of love that develops without intimacy or commitment. People are attracted to one another and develop a sense of lust. Some people become obsessed with a person and view them as an object. You can be with someone for years and don’t feel there is commonality between you and that person," he said.


    Complete love is only possible through commitment. "People who want commitment are seeking stability and a healthy partnership," he stated. "If people only seek commitment, they may lack sexual attraction and basic friendship interests."

    Henry said that in modern times young adults are more interested than ever in objects and relationships. He said, "The objectification of culture comes from consumerism." "The more consumerism a culture becomes the more people lose interest and commitments. Some youth are more focused on impressing people than they care about. attitude status in hindi must be consumed, even relationships with other people.

    Love Outside the Triangular Theory

    Sternberg’s love theory is universally applicable. However, everyone has their own reasons for falling in love. Your reason for falling madly in love does not necessarily have to be explained by science. Henry explained that certain personal needs may include fear of being alone, social pressure, satisfaction, or religious beliefs.

    Despite what psychology has to say about love, the type of love we choose defines who we are. Each of us has our own ways of understanding what makes our lives happy and meets our human needs. "Some people have a need that fulfills all three dimensions of the triangle, and they don’t want to give up on any of them because they feel they are being deprived of another dimension. gitari is complicated."
