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.
WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS A THING?????
I literally thought about this 5 years ago. Except I called it the “Trilateral Love Theory” (pretty damn close to “Triangular Theory of Love”) and used a tripod, instead of a triangle, to explain it. I used to give friends dating advice using it. I even wrote a damn song about it. *coughshamelessplugcough* (For the record, I recorded that song in 2009, I’ve had 5 years worth of progress since, and still think I’m a fucking terrible singer today; that should give you an idea of how bad my voice was. Adjust your expectations accordingly, then lower them even more.) To this day, I stand by this theory and use it to evaluate my own relationships. I’m gonna have to look into this Robert Sternberg fellow.
"First we must be friends" - Intimacy
"Then we must be partners" - Commitment
"Last, but far off least, we must be lovers" - Passion
I’m fucking flabbergasted right now. O.O
"The scientific consensus around the safety of genetically modified foods is as strong as the scientific consensus around climate change. [For those of you who don’t know, the scientific community accepts climate change, there is no debate.] These foods are subjected to more testing than any other, and everything tells use that they’re safe."
Genetically modified food has been around for nearly 20 years and at this point it would be pointless labeling them differently to ordinary food, and ridiculously stupid to ban them all together.lol at the first pic on top. ya can keep believing that GM food doesn’t effect you. Maybe GM food has been around for 20 years or so BUT, people are just finding out about it now. And recent studies show that they do affect us in a bad way so banning them is not stupid scienceguy. I prefer my real fruits and veggies the way nature intended not no man made bullshit.
forreal, how the fuck you gonna believe the that shit is safe? cancer hasnt been more prominent until the last 20 years mhmm coincidence yeah i dont believe so, look at americas health we are the capital for gmos and the capital for obese people and the capital with major health issues,etc etc etcc… elllllloo stop believing all the shit they decide to dish out onya so they can make some moneys.
adthekid - 98 million acres of GMO crop has been produced over the last 20 years and there have been NO reported cases of an individual suffering health defects. If by ‘recent studies’ you are referring to the study done on pigs then you need to keep looking, that study was found to be faulty and on closer inspection actually increased the validity of the statement ‘GMO is safe’
reallysadreamwhenuronlsd - you stated you’re from america so i am going to assume english is your first language in which case your grammar is horrible so, no offence, im going to guess you do not have a degree in any scientific field? Half of those statements in the post were by non-profit organisations, please tell me how they intend to make money by selling us GMO food?
As for the supposed increase in cancer - thats just plain not true. Virtually all types of cancer rates have remained steady over the past 100 years. Except lung which, due to cigarettes, increased rapidly in the mid-1900’s however even that has been decreasing just as rapidly over the last 20 years. The other exception is stomach cancer - which has been decreasing steadily for the past 100 years. There has been no increase in cancer. please check your sources, blind faith in the media, especially internet media, is what leads to mass hysteria around things like this. Its tantamount to the vaccine hysteria/rumors years ago which some people Still believe.

Yes! Yes! Yes! It really bums me out when people fear science. Have a little faith in humanity! We’ve been genetically modifying animals and plants through domestication, cultivation, selective breeding, etc. for thousands of years; it’s not much different if we do it in a lab, except that we have more control over it and can achieve greater things. The whole “fat Americans” argument is so sad. I mean, do you really believe the primary purpose of GMOs is to feed the obese? I don’t know if you know this, but there’s a whole world of people outside of America, and believe it or not, most of them are starving! If you had your way and got rid of GMOs, pesticides, and herbicides, you’d be doing more harm than good.

Y’all are talking about the Ukraine as if no one was talking about the Ukraine. Then, there’s the handful of Kanyesque “Yo Ukraine, Imma let you finish, but Venezuela is having one hell of a rough time!” posts. But you know what doesn’t rhyme with Fukushima? Michoacan. Now, give me all your pseudo-activist hipster points while you Google your way into enlightenment.
- I appreciate a good sex scene.
- Both of these people are ridiculously good looking.
- It’s gonna look great with my background.
- The longer I stare at that statue in the back, the funnier it gets.
- Not as funny as the first image though, I know it’s just an optical illusion caused by the way she’s riding him, but it kinda looks like she’s being impregnated and the child starts growing at an alarming rate.
But what if it worked like that? Like if childbirth occurred seconds after conception, and the father had to deliver the baby as there’s no time to call a doctor; that’d be pretty crazy. O.o
