Happy Valentine's Day_9 forms of love

I once read somewhere a long time ago, (but currently found on the dataguru website) that Beverly Fehr conducted a study in which she described how there are 9 forms of love:

  1. Friendship
  2. Platonic
  3. Affection
  4. Romantic
  5. Passionate
  6. Committed
  7. Infatuation
  8. Puppy
  9. Sexual

So as you celebrate love today, figure out which form of love you are celebrating. Or which mixture of loves you are celebrating. Today, (this can change tomorrow), I'd go for a heady "love mix" of 50% affection, 20% friendship,  20% committed, and 10% Passionate love these days. Leave me digital valentines of your "love mix" for the day.

Speaking of Valentines Day, the LOL cats community language has expanded to include the sequential narrative. And the purpose of this Valentine's sequential gem was to propose! A LOLcats proposal … what an interesting development! Thanks again for the workshop at NCSU.
