Each one of us is made different and we think differently too. When you choose your partner, your relationship will not be the same kind of relationship you’ve expected, even if you strive to make it something you want.
Relationships differ because of a lot of things, such as what kind of a person you or your partner is, kinds of experiences you’ve both had in the past, how mature the two of you are, and a lot of other tidbits that all contribute in making each and every relationship unique.
To be honest, there could be a whole bunch of relationships out there, but if you could relate to a few, then seven very specific kinds of relationships standout. This could be due to the situation and circumstances you are in or the type of personality you have.
So, here are seven types of romantic relationships which you could possibly relate to.
1. The One Without Love
Well, to start off, this may not be considered as the definition of ‘romance’ by a lot of people but it certainly is a relationship. This is the kind of relationship that purely depends upon physical needs. There isn’t much to brag about other than having a great time getting dirty between the sheets. Usually, these relationships are transient and bring ephemeral happiness. And that latter claim isn’t really a guarantee as well, so don’t quote us on that.
There are apps that are available for someone who is into these kinds of relationships – you know exactly which app I’m talking about.
2. The One Where You’re More Than Friends
This usually happens to people who have been together for a while. Years of friendship helps you get to know more about the person and you start developing a special kind of liking towards him/her.
You are not really dating but, at the same time… you kind of are. In fact, you’re just more than friends but will not take things further in order to avoid complications. Complications, which you’re afraid would end your friendship or bond.
3. The One With Fatuous Love
One of the meanings of fatuous is being pointless, which pretty much explains this kind of relationship.
A relationship in which you’re having a great time with each other and in between the sheets, but you have no clue where this relationship is headed in the years to come.
It’s not like you are not aware of it; you just don’t want to discuss it due to the fear of complicating things or, perhaps, some other reason. Or sometimes you are just waiting for the best to happen.
4. The One With Romantic Love
You just love each other head over heels and nothing can come in between you. Everything you do is romantic and your fights don’t last long or never even occur in the first place.
You definitely know where you are heading and have things planned because you just can’t imagine life without each other.
5. The One With Compassion
This is the kind of relationship which everybody should aim for because you know each other in and out. Even if you are different you get along easily, you could actually stay together without even talking much because you don’t need to talk to understand each other.
It’s quite rare to have a relationship like this, but when you have it nothing in the world can come between you.
6. The One With Infatuation
Infatuation is where you think there is nothing in the world without your partner and you just have to be with him/her forever. Infatuation also means that your relationship could be short-lived.
It’s a myth that it happens only amongst teenagers, it could happen to anyone at any period of time.
You could feel that there is meaning or cannot imagine a life without your partner. It isn’t, really, a healthy kind of a relationship because it creates a lot of complications.
7. The One With Consummate Love
This is the pinnacle of all relationships. This kind of love is what every person aims for but it doesn’t occur all the time, especially in the recent times.
You know everything about your partner and you can live with them no matter what comes between you both. You can cross all the hurdles with ease and nothing can separate you. You are friends, lovers, family or even enemies but you can never be separated.
This is the relationship where you feel loved even after things become monotonous. Actually, everything you do is something to be cheered about.
So, yes, these are the different types of relationships which one can come across in their lives. Have you ever been lucky enough to share relationship number 4 or 7 with somebody? Or are you currently stuck in relationship number 2 and need the courage to take things further? Well, what are you waiting for; tag your friends and/or lover(s) (we don’t judge) and let them know!
