- Ludus: is carefree and casual love that is considered “fun and game”. The people that have this style of love have several partners at one time and aren’t possessive or jealous, primarily because they don’t want their lovers to become too dependent on them. These people have sex for fun not emotional rapport. - Storge: a slow burning peaceful, affectionate love that comes with the passage of time and the enjoyment of shared activities. This is almost equivalent to companionate love; a feeling of togetherness, tenderness, deep affection, and supporting each other over time. - Agape: an altruistic, self-sacrificing love that is directed toward all mankind. This style of love is kind and patient and never jealous or demanding, it doesn’t seek reciprocity. Example: these people are people that might be waiting for a lover in jail, or might tolerate illegal activities or infidelity.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
