Abstract


Introduction. Since a time scientists have began to „dissolve” love and separate „elemental factors”; thus the love “alchemy” or “chemistry” has a different sense now. The most known is the triangular theory of love by Sternberg, according to whom love consists of Intimacy, Passion, and Decision/Commitment. The aim of this work was to assess the intensity of love components among young women and men.

Conclusions. Women and men in various ways experience love. Women more intensively experience
