Adolescent romantic relationships are marked by feelings, thoughts, or behaviors within a relationship and have been found to be associated with intimacy, passion, commitment, sexual attitudes, trust, dependence and communication. The present research is based on studying the relationship between love and relationship satisfaction of adolescents. For this purpose, Sternberg’s Triangular Love Scale and Relationship Assessment Scale were administered on a sample of 100 adolescents (age=18-22 years). Correlation was applied which showed that a significant positive correlation exists between the types of love and relationship satisfaction. The t-test revealed that no gender differences were found in their types of love and in their relationship satisfaction. The thematic analysis done using a semi-structured interview revealed that gender differences exist between intimacy and passion of adolescents.
