5. on page 285. Do it. Be honest. Second, you don't have to reveal your love attitude,
BUT do discuss the love attitudes you want your romantic partner to have toward you.
Is there any disconnect between your own attitudes and the attitudes you want?
There are 6 factors discussed in regards to "Romantic Attraction" (beginning with
"proximity"). Think of a romantic relationship you now have or once had. Either will
work. Discuss how that relationship began in terms of the 6 factors? Did they all play
an equal role? Which were primary for you (even if you didn't realize it at the time)?
Were there other factors (not listed) involved? Are there any factors you would now be

Explain how can you communicate in ways that will overcome differentiating (there
