What Is the Psychological Definition of Love

What Is the Psychological Definition of Love?

As a qualified psychologist, I understand love as developing an intense interest in or liking a person or object you find attractive.

What Are Some Key Components to Love?

  • Intimacy (closeness, connectedness, and relatedness)
  • Passion (feelings and desires that set the stage for physical attraction, romance, and intercourse)
  • Commitment (feelings that make a person hold onto someone and face the uncertain future together)

Why Would Someone Be Afraid to Say ‘I Love You?’

For some people, saying the three-lettered word means letting their guard down. This leaves them with the fear that they will be too exposed or vulnerable.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
