Triangle Theory of Love as Presented by Shan Boody

Shannon Boodram aka Shan Boody is a sex educator and YouTube personality. I came across a video of her recently explaining the triangle theory of love. The triangle theory of love is a framework to determine if you and someone you’re dating are compatible.

In a nutshell, to be compatible you need commitment, passion, and companionship.

Commitment and companionship is basically a friendship.

Passion and companionship is a friends with benefits arrangement, I think.

Commitment and passion is…a disaster waiting to happen?

This seems like a useful model to keep in mind. Confession, I’m mostly writing this so I can have something to refer to.
