Forming a romantic relationship (love) or emotional intimacy is one of the most primal needs of the human being. But how they perceive this relationship or their attitude towards love is totally depend upon their own life experiences.

Boys showed higher Ludus and maniac attitudes whereas girls showed higher pragmatic, eros, agape, and storge type of love attitude in their relationship.
