A mathematical model that qualitatively describes the dynamics of love between secure individuals is presented in this paper with two goals. The general goal is to show how dynamic phenomena in the field of social psychology can be analyzed following the modelling approach, traditionally used in all other fields of sciences. The specific goal is to derive, from very general assumptions on the behavior of secure individuals, a series of rather detailed properties of the dynamics of their feelings. The analysis shows, in particular, why couples can be partitioned into fragile and robust couples, how the quality of romantic relationships is influenced by behavioral parameters and in which sense individual appeal can create order in a community structure.
