I can relate the progression of mine and Mehdi’s relationship to Lee’s Love Styles. Love styles might be described as the tendencies and behaviors a person has for their love life. I would say that mehdi and I had an Eros love. An Eros love, is the love based upon beauty and attraction. It’s an erotic love where the partners are similar in every way possible. In fact, the first time we met, we were passionate about each other. We were both the kind of person who don’t reveal her feeling until feeling secure about other’s feeling. We were both fearing the commitment therefore we just We didn’t think if each one of us is the right person for the other. It was just natural and obvious. Whenever I had the opportunity to see him, I was so excited to see him. As, the time goes, we started getting used to each other, and opened up our heart. We could not develop this intimacy only three years after knowing each other. I remember the first time we said I love you to each other. It was during the summer 2007, I had never felt secure to share my love to him because I was not sure of his love to me. That day was so emotional. When he whispers me that he loves me, I thought that I am in a dream. Since that day, we felt secure to share our love and our relationship became so delightful. Every second spent together was fairy. I was 15 when I met him, we were like a young lovers who enjoy being with each other. However, we did not use to share much things about our lives. We were not intimate. We don’t even ask each other if we have a partner. In other words, we had a care free love. I enjoyed it that way because I am a person who like feeling free and not committed to anyone . Based on the love triangle, I would say that our type of love is the infatuation type . This kind of love involves only passion but does not involve any commitment or intimacy. (Olson) However, whenever I had the opportunity to see him, I
