What's Your Love Style -- and Who's Your Best Match?

Potential pitfall: He might become fed up with her constant performing; she might find it difficult to meet his ever-growing expectations of her performances. This pair must learn to communicate directly instead of covertly, to really listen and speak to each other.

Ms. Joined-at-the-Hip

The only time she leaves her man is when she visits the little girls' room. She's trained to stand by her guy even if she has to sit on him to do it. Ms. Joined-at-the-Hip wants affection, flowers, candy -- all the time. She hasn't begun to form her own sense of self.

Best matchup: Mr. Protective. He's big. He's strong. He's the perfect port in a storm. If he gives his honey bunny her requisite doses of romance she'll play Priscilla to his Elvis.

Potential pitfall: His partner's chronic neediness can become tedious, causing Mr. Protective to pull away. Or she might drop the helpless-without-you act, which seems threatening to an insecure mate. This couple needs to grow supportive of each other's changes.

The Woman Who Doesn't Need People (Much)

She's the type who likes time alone to seek out her own interests and hang out with friends. To someone enmeshed in this love style, romance has a place, an important one, but it's not the be-all and end-all of human existence.

Best matchup: Man of Many Interests. You're ice skating with the girls; he's fly fishing with the guys. He doesn't need total togetherness, but the time you spend together is high quality.
