IS LOVE ADDICTIVE?
Our brain releases hormones when we experience love leading to euphoria, positive feelings, and an urge to have more! A love catalyst is an agent that enhances our experience.
Humans can experience eight types of love:
❤️Philia — Affectionate Love without romantic attraction and occurs between friends or family.
❤️Pragma — Enduring or bonded love that matures between couples over years.
❤️Storge — Familiar Love is natural to love between parents and children or best friends.
❤️Eros — Romantic Love is a natural instinct displayed through physical affection.
Catalyst: Physical body
❤️Ludus — Playful or flirtatious love commonly found in the beginning stages of a relationship consists of teasing, playfulness, and laughter.
❤️Mania — Obsessive Love leads to jealousy or possessiveness .it’s found in couples with an imbalance of Eros and Ludus.
Catalyst: Survival instinct
❤️Philautia — Self Love is acknowledgement of our own well-being.
❤️Agape — Selfless Love is without any expectations of receiving anything in return.
