When do we feel loved?

We put special focus on the ''positive relationships'' dimension of the self-reported well-being state by considering cognitive evaluations of feeling loved as an crucial variable. The goal is to study cognitive aspects of how the feeling of being loved is experienced by the receiving individual. Specifically, we will evaluate through the use of psychometric modeling what it is that makes people feel loved, and explore whether people broadly agree on indicators of feeling loved. Moreover, we examine whether an individual's ability to recognize the state of being loved is related to other factors.
