My list of the five kinds of love (for me):

1) sexual attraction
2) romantic love
3) familial love (cuddling)
4) affection
5) friendship

To me, these types of love are relatively independent.  5) usually goes with 4) though I think they’re separate feelings, somehow.  I can feel each of these for multiple people at the same time, in varying amounts.  Some people can only feel 1) and 2) for one person at a time.  Once I love someone in any of these modes, my feelings can change a bit, up and down, over time, but I don’t ever really stop loving someone entirely, even if I feel love for someone else, later.
