Happy Valentines Day! If you’re in a romantic relationship, today would be the day you would most celebrate the Eros kind of love.
Eros love is the kind of love celebrated between two people in a romantic relationship. The word “erotic” is said to have come from the word Eros.
This type of love is sensual, passionate, & shared between two people on a level that connects them unlike they are connected with anyone else. This type of love is meant to be shared in long-lasting relationships.
Eros love is not only focused around sexual intimacy. It’s the butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling you get when you’re with your partner. It’s feeling of your heart racing when you know you’re going to see your loved one later in the afternoon. It’s the feeling of forgiveness when they humbly ask for it after making a mistake.
Eros is the emotional connection you have with your significant other that binds you together unlike any other person.
What about other types of love? Keep reading as we’ll discuss those as well in the coming days. Have a wonderful Valentines Day!
