It Turns out, There Are Just 5 Relationship Types

Love comes in all shapes and sizes, but did you know that you can categorize most love stories into five relationship types?
Have you ever thought about what type of relationship you are in? Of course, everybody has their own experiences with love, likely both good and bad.


It’s a smart idea to recognize what relationship types you are involved in.

Once you are able to distinguish this, you can more easily make decisions about whether or not you’re happy with your love life.

Read on to see if any of these five relationship types resonates with you.

1. The Rock

This is one of the best relationship types of all. When you find your rock, you have found someone who makes you feel comfortable and brings out the best in you. This person may ground you have had trouble determining your path in life.

This person is trustworthy and can help you make life decisions with your best interest in mind. The rock relationship represents most happy long-term relationship types. If you are in a serious relationship, however, and you wouldn’t consider your partner to be your rock… maybe it’s time to reconsider.

2. Break from Reality

One of the most fun, yet harmful relationship types is the break from reality relationship. This relationship is often very enticing to someone who has just exited a long-term relationship.

At least one person in this relationship type just wants a break from reality or serious life and wants to have fun with someone. The break from reality relationship is also common with someone who leads a stressful lifestyle. Someone who works a lot, for example.

This person wants to blow off steam once or twice a week but doesn’t have the time or the desire for a major commitment. This relationship becomes harmful when two parties don’t feel exactly the same. When one of the people in the relationship develops more serious feelings, they will be let down.

When entering into one of these relationships it’s important to voice your thoughts to your partner and make sure he or she feels the same way. You don’t want your partner to end up feeling like they are not good enough.
