Abstract: The present study was an attempt to further the research on love and relationships. More specifically, this study focused on the relationships between love styles, adult attachment, integration of partner information, perfectionism, self-esteem, and relationship satisfaction. Participants in the study were 106 students from a small liberal arts college in Florida, comprised of 77 females and 19 males and ranging from 18 to 36 years of age. The participants completed an online survey including measures of each of the variables, as well as demographic information including relationship status and current love status. Only one gender difference was found, with females reporting more of the storge love style than males. Many correlations were found between the measures, including replications of other studies as well as some original results. Perhaps most notably, relationship satisfaction was positively related to erotic and storgic love styles, integration of partner information, self-esteem, secure attachment, and being in love; interestingly, these concepts were also almost all related to one another. These results should inspire further inquiry as to the way all of these variables interact in relationships.
