I'm not sure what kinds of answers you are looking for, but I'll give it my best shot.

Familial love -  natural affection—such as the love of a parent towards offspring, and vice versa.

Romantic love - the expressive and pleasurable feeling from an emotional attraction towards another person often associated with sexual attraction.

According to your profile, you're 19 years old, probably just finished high school and you're starting to mature, to make your own decisions, to be separate from your family. You're just learning about the world from your perspective - not your dad's or your mom's or your siblings.

When you feel comfortable enough to start dating, you should start things off slow - get to know the other person. When you truly get to know someone else, your feelings grow deeper for that person, your sense of intimacy is heightened.

When you have a crush on someone, it's usually one-sided, meaning that the other person might not have any idea on how you feel, you usually feel as if you really know that person when in reality, you've never really had a conversation with them.

There is no rush to find someone to share a romantic relationship with. Get to know people of both sexes so you have a variety of friends - friends that let you be goofy or serious or just do stuff with.

When you are ready to take a friendship to the next level, listen to your heart and to your gut. If you don't feel comfortable, back off and listen to the little voice in your head that's trying to tell you something. I hope this was helpful for you.

The thing about love . . . It makes you vulnerable. To truly love someone you must not be guarded and restricted.

This, of course, is applied in accordance with the type of love we are talking about.

Love for fellow human beings - a type of "Brotherly" love regarding our kinship we have as a species.

Love of Family - That feeling of "Home" that we get when we are around each other within a family. A place where you can be yourself because your guard is down.

That love of Carnal nature - Mostly physical and driven by instinct and pheromones. Although this love seems selfish, it can be very open in terms of vulnerability.

The key is it must be an open act . . . While I would love to tell you it is free from reciprocity, it does require some return in investment.

Everyone struggles with the concept of love at one or more times in their lives.

Love is something that you do, and it is both an art and a science that you will be practicing all your life and hopefully getting better at it all the time.

Here is a good book to read that gives you a good knowledge of the concept, the things involved, and a few comments on the different types of love---romantic, brotherly, maternal, etc.

It is called The Art of Loving, by Erich Fromm.

It is widely available in paperback.
