Based on the work of Phillip Shaver and others, Baumeister and Bushman (2014) describe four types of adult attachment styles: secure, preoccupied, dismissing avoidant, and fearful avoidant. Research has identified that these attachment styles can be readily classified (Shaver, as cited in Baumeister & Bushman, 2014).

In Robert Sternberg’s (1986) triangular theory of love, he identifies seven types of adult love based on levels of three dimensions: passion, intimacy, and commitment.
