Romantic relationship/love is the expression of the intensive desire of being an entity with someone else, in a cognitive, behavioral and emotional aspect. Organizational commitment is clarified by the acceptance of organizational aims and values, employees' willingness to stay in their own organization and their intention to display more efforts. In this study, it was analysed whether there is a relation between the level of attachment / passionate love felt by the employees within their romantic relationships, the affective commitment and continuance commitment of the employees towards their organizations. The survey method was used as a data collection tool. With the use of "Organizational Commitment Scale'' and "Passionate Love Scale'', surveys were applied to doctors and nurses selected from a health institution. Surveys were analysed via the package programme of STATA-11/EVIEWS-7/SPSS-21. According to the result of the analysis, it was determined that a positive side and weak relation exist between the level of passionate love, affective commitment and continuance commitment.
