Ludic love does not require great commitment.• Storge (peacefulness and slowness): Storge has less passion and excitement. Storgic lovers often share common interests.• Pragma (deed, task, work): In Greek, pragma means “life work.” Pragmatic lovers are extremely logical and practical. They want a longterm relationship with an individual who shares their goals in life.• Mania (elation and depression): This is the love that is often referred to as “romantic love.” It exhibits extreme feelings and is full of excitement and intensity, but it reaches a peak and then quickly fades away.• Agape (compassion and selflessness): In this type of love, the individual gives willingly and expects nothing in return. This type of lover can care for others without close ties; a deep relationship is not necessary for agapic love to develop.
