There are specifically four types of love: friendship love, security love, romantic love and lastly unconditional love. The love between yourself and someone that you have full faith and trust in and are completely comfortable with is known as friendship love. You may know a lot of people but you tend to only share friendship love with those closest to you. This kind of love can change dramatically down the line. One person may feel more attracted towards an individual, and the feelings of that individual may be misinterpreted, therefore leading to a destroyed friendship.
