The Love Attitudes Scale


The Love Attitudes Scale is a 42 item questionnaire.

Items are scored on a 1-5 scale. Each subscale is measured separately (each participant gets a different score on each subscale). The items are divided into subscales with the total scale score calculated as a sum of the factor scores.
