According to Hani Henry, chair and associate professor of psychology in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology and Egyptology at AUC, Robert Sternberg's psychological theory covers the most common reasons why we fall in love, namely: intimacy, passion and commitment.


It is possible to fall in love for intimate reasons, but it does not require commitment or passion. "Besides developing a close connection with someone, a lot of people seek intimacy for self-enhancement; it doesn't necessarily have to be for sex," said Henry. "Sometimes it can be self-serving. Everyone wants to be loved and cared for. Women need to feel their femininity while men desire their masculinity.

Adele's song Hello is a perfect example of how intimacy is captured. Adele contacts her ex boyfriend and reveals her feelings of heartbreak about the relationship in the song's chorus. She admits that it has been many years since she last saw her ex-boyfriend and that she has not done any healing. "Her lyrics are magic and speak for many people who want an emotional connection with anyone, or even a short-term romance," he stated.


Normal to fall in love out of desire or strong feelings is normal. Passionate love can be developed from feelings that result in sexual attraction, romance and physical interest. Henry explained, "When you meet someone you like you become captivated by that person." "The attraction is physical, and there is a fascination with the hair, eyes and body."

Infatuation is a feeling of love that develops without intimacy or commitment. "People become captivated and develop lust. Some people see the person they love as a kind of object. You can be with someone for years and don't feel there is commonality between you and that person," he said.


Commitment is complete love. He stated that those who are committed want stability and a healthy partner. "People who seek only commitment can be unable to find basic friendship and sexual attraction.

Henry says that young adults today are more interested in objects than in relationships. "The objectification comes from consumerism," he explained. "The more consumerism a culture becomes the more people lose interest and commitments. Some youth are more interested in impressing people they don't care about. So everything needs to be consumed, even relationships with people."

Love Outside the Triangular Theory

Although it's common that anyone can relate to Sternberg's love theory, we all have our personal reasons for falling in love. Your reason for falling madly in love does not necessarily have to be explained by science. top attitude status in hindi explained that certain personal needs may include fear of being alone, social pressure, satisfaction, or religious beliefs.

Psychology may have some things to say about love but the love we choose is what defines us. We have our own way of understanding what makes us happy and fulfills our human needs. "Some people are caught with a need that meets each dimension of the triangle and they can't give up on two because of the different needs they get. Love is very complex."
