Liking includes only one element of the three – intimacy that allows for a friendship without any passion or long-term commitment.
It includes a combination of intimacy and commitment. It is a close, long-term friendship that typifies a healthy marriage where the passion has faded.
This includes only commitment, and as it says, it is empty, with no intimacy or passion.
Commitment is formed based on passion without any intimacy, a somewhat non-sexual relationship with company.
This is passionate and obsessive and resembles love at first sight and is pure passion.
Here, individuals are physically and emotionally attracted to each other but haven’t committed to the relationship.
A combination of all three elements. It is the ideal perfect love that is difficult to attain and maintain.
