Companionate Love



Companionate Love:
+ add to my flashcards
Compassionate love is when two people first fall in love, they often have an intense passion for each other; they want to touch all the time, kiss all the time, and have very absorbing feelings, like "floating on a cloud". However, over time, this type of intense passion subsides. What evolves from this type of love can be nothing, or it can turn into "companionate love," a deep, mature, affectionate attachment between people who love each other, like each other, and respect each other.
