Comp. + Pass. Reciprocation
When someone's feelings of love are reciprocated, people feel elated and fulfilled. When they are not, it leads to despondance and despair.

Hatfield's Research
Hatfield suggests that Passionate Love arises when the cultural expectations encourage falling in love, when the person meets your preconcieved ideas of ideal love, and when you expeience heightened physiological arousal around the significant other.

Combining Comp. + Pass.
Ideally, passionate leads to compassionate, which is more enduring. While most desire relationships that combine the two, Hatfield believes this phenomenon rare.
