Everyone, even the most ardent materialist, somewhere deep inside wants to meet true love, which can last a lifetime and, perhaps, even longer. However, the psychology of love suggests that everything is not so simple: before you get a deep sincere mutual feeling, you need to go through 7 stages of love, each of which has its own characteristics and its importance in the formation of any relationship.

Love is not given at once. Many people understand this, but not many are willing to work in order to finally love sincerely and deeply. It has long been noticed that real feeling appears with the years, it takes a lot of testing and wisdom to love.

Love is a feeling, a service to a loved person. If the feeling dies, then we are not responsible for it. Love is not the action of hormones, but the action of the mind, the subconscious. There are several types of stages of love. Look at them and think what your stage is:
