Love and Attraction

PROXIMITY geographic nearness – is perhaps the most powerful predictor of friendship People are most likely to like, and even to marry, those who live in the same neighbourhood etc...
SYMMETRY IS ATTRACTIVE more likely to have larger number of sex partners "Given ideal growing conditions, paired features such as ears, eyes and feet would come out matching perfectly. But pollution, disease and other hazards can disrupt development. As a result, the least resilient individuals tend to be the most lopsided."
HARD TO GET EFFECT the tendency to prefer people who are highly selective in their social choices over those who are more readily available
HARD TO GET EFFECT CONTD. Walster et al. study: men prefer a selectively hard-to-get woman, than a uniformly hard-to-get woman or a uniformly easy-to-get woman
EVOLUTIONARY PERSPECTIVE ON MATE SELECTION Men prefer attractive physical features suggesting youth and health – and therefore reproductive potential Women prefer men who are mature, dominant, and affluent – suggesting capacity to support and protect offspring

COMPANIONATE LOVE the deep affectionate attachment we feel for those with whom our lives are intertwined
