Covalent bondbond in which one or more pairs of electrons are shared by two atoms.
Ionic bondbond in which one or more electrons from one atom are removed and attached to another atom, resulting in positive and negative ions which attract each other. 
Metallic bonds are a special category of covalent bonds, which (unsurprisingly) occur in metals.  In metallic bonding, the electrons delocalize, forming a sort of "cloud" or "soup," interspersed with the individual nuclei.
