Sternberg’s Love Theory
The triangular theory of love is a theory of love developed by psychologist Robert Sternberg. In the context of interpersonal relationships, ‘the three components of love, according to the triangular theory, are an intimacy component, a passion component, and a decision/commitment component’.
Intimacy – Which encompasses feelings of attachment, closeness, connectedness, and bondedness.
Passion – Which encompasses drives connected to both limerence and sexual attraction.
Commitment – Which encompasses, in the short term, the decision to remain with another, and in the long term, the shared achievements and plans made with that other.
Hi. I broke up with my significant other and i didn’t cheat on him or anything. I just needed some space. He said he understood. That he’s been through the same thing but he’s not listening to his own words.
All i asked for was some space and he tells me “no, you don’t want space. You want everything.”
If i wanted everything, i wouldn’t have asked for less. I wouldn’t have told you that i needed you to be my best friend instead of my boyfriend when i was going through tough times. I wouldn’t have wanted to slow things down.
I’m not those girls you think aren’t satisfied with the relationship and leave you.
I think I’m allowed to take a step back. I’ve never been in a serious relationship before. All i wanted to do was evaluate things on my own. Do stuff on my own.
And now i see all these tweets about me.
That you should’ve given up ages ago. That I’m playing with your feelings. That all this was a facade. To what? Take advantage of you? I thought you knew me more than anyone else. I trusted you with everything and you still want to take in all those ideas from someone who didn’t like MY thinking.
Sure i said some things about you i shouldn’t have. But i didn’t tell you because i knew they were my own selfish thinking. I resolved them on my own and that’s all that matters! And I’m not even done resolving my selfish issues! That’s partly why i needed a time out too.
But i guess you wouldn’t have this. You would rather take in information that’s against me. And apparently, you want to tell the whole world shit about me. You DO know we share some friends. I’ve never EVER told the world shit about you. You love me huh? I don’t know what that means coming from you anymore.
I thought this would be different but you wouldn’t take my reason. I thought we had a chance in the future but you wouldn’t take no for an answer. You couldn’t humbly let me go just to breathe away from the relationship.
You didn’t want my explanations and since I’m the one who left you, only yours mattered and for once it did and now i regret giving you the liberty to be right. But you wanted more than that. You listened to that devil upon your shoulder we called friend. You wanted to find something against me. Another reason. So we would never be together ever again right?
