The exploratory factor analysis resulted in six factors (Eros, Ludus, Storge, Pragma, Mania and Ágape), that explained 47.87 % of the total variance. The correlations between the score of Eros and Pragma styles and positive affect were positive and significant; while Manía and Ludus styles had positive and significant relationships with negative affect. Reliability by the method of internal consistency of the six factors found were from .62 to .85; while the stability coefficients for test- retest method were .44 to .77. These results allow us to conclude that the LAS and their scores are valid and reliable to measure attitudes toward love in the college population of Lima.
