Do You Know The Nine Styles of Love?

 

Nine Love Styles

 

 

The fun thing about love styles is the way they help you understand yourself ... and why some of your relationships thrive and why others seem doomed from the start. The styles explain how we all speak a different language of love.

Love styles reflect how you prefer to express your affection, love and compassion ... as well as how you know that you are loved. If they sound familiar, its because they are based based on the nine life paths.

 

Brief Overview

As you read the brief descriptions below, keep in mind that you may have different styles for the different people in your life. Your kids, best friends, lovers and soul mate may all evoke a different style of expressing love. And as your loved ones grow and evolve, they may need and want a different style of love than you prefer are able to give.

Also, keep in mind that your own unique love style may be a combination of several of these styles.

Love Style 0: Lost & STill Searching


Love Style 0: Lost, Still Searching

With a love style of zero, you are at a loss or still searching for the best way to express your love. Fumbling around, being unsure of yourself, the right move to make, the right thing to say, or just not sure where to put your hands. This style, a common one for those just starting out, can become an endless loop if you fail to discover yourself ... and explore and develop your own unique style of expressing your feelings, concerns, compassion and love (with a capital L).

Expressing courage, whether in the bedroom or on the battlefield of life, is a major focus.

Making someone feel safe and protected, well guarded as well as well loved, is key.

In love style six, you are focused on using knowledge and express your love by creating, sharing and using it.

Beyond the nurturing style of Two, you are working at a deeper and grander level to transform their lives and help them overcome the barriers that hold them back ... physically, mentally or energetically.

Love Style 7: Researching, Analyzing

Seven is all about seeking the truth and sharing it with the ones you love. Investigating, researching, analyzing the facts, you are the one who ferrets out the real story, weighs the pros and cons of the major life decisions of the ones you love, and works through the tough times to find the nugget of truth. Friends and family turn to you for your ability to figure out what is going on -- and you love to get to the bottom of things. You show your love by researching the heck out of the next vacation spot, investigating every pizza place to discover which is the best, and discussing the intricacies of theories about your favorite subjects late into the night.

Being the executive in charge lets you smooth the path for those you love and put their world in order. As the leader of the pack, you like to be out in front, taking charge and making life happen for those you love. From ordering college applications for the kids to overseeing the smallest details of your vacations together -- making things run efficiently as well as at full throttle are your aim.

 

Love Style 9: Guiding, Mentoring


 


Love Style 9: Mentoring, Guiding

Love style nine is different. Here love is expressed by taking the role of guide, mentor or sage. In that sense, you show your love by sharing the experience, insight and wisdom you have gained. Your highest and best moments come when you can help the ones you love move forward on their path. Not necessarily always a relationship that involves a vast gap in age or wisdom ... a true match among equals who both have love path Nine can be quite extraordinary ... an opportunity to see-saw through some of the toughest love terrain.

 

 

So, now that you have read all the styles, take a moment to think about your relationships.

Do any of these describe you or someone you know? If they do describe you, which ones do your prefer to get? Which ones do you prefer to receive? Does this help you understand why some of your relationship work and others failed?

Curious to learn more, such as ...

How Do I Find My Love Style?

By searching for it ... within yourself and the way you express and share love with everything around you. The secret to your path to love is really ... all around you ... in all the things you do now to express your love, affection, caring and compassion.

So what if you are saying to yourself ... "I have no idea how I do that".

Or worse, "Isn't it just about buying flowers and candy on Valentine's Day?"

Take a moment and think about it. In all the Great Love Stories, no one is following the cliques -- they are setting them. In Say Anything, he stands outside her house and raises a boom box above his head ... sear.ana.ding her with the music from his heart and soul {and that image is seared into the memories of most people who experienced the film}. In another, he puts her on a plane to help save the world from World War II. And in another, he winds his way through a party to find her, stays behind when the fort will be taken by enemy hands, and jumps off a 200 foot waterfall to be able to rescue her.

Each "rose" to the occasion -- rather than giving roses. Each shared the bitter sweetness of their life and love -- instead of sharing a box of chocolates. They didn't just talk about going to the Moon -- they went there and offered their loves the ride of their life -- one filled not with hearts and flowers on a Valentine's card -- but the real thing -- their heart flowering into an extraordinary love that could thrive on the ups and downs of real life.

So, if you are still reading this, the question I have is ... do you really want to live a life filled with incredible, breathtaking moments of love, laughter and delight? Not everyone does. Frankly, it takes work. And that work starts with learning more about yourself. Which isn't always easy ... but to me it is fun. Egomaniacs aside, isn't it kind of fun to figure out who you are, and how to get the girl or guy of your dreams?

So, the fun and the work starts here ...learning about your preferred style of expressing and sharing love. Take a moment to read about the nine love paths I have come up with -- based on the nine life paths. You may find that one perfectly fits you ... or that you are a combination of several. You might even find that your style changes upon who you are with ... your kids may get one style ... your friends another ... and your lover a third .. and your soul mate all of them.
