    Social Psychology
    Attraction and Relationships
    "Attraction: Mere Exposure, Complementarity, Physical Attractiveness, Propinquity, Resources, Similarity, What Women Want; Relationships: Communication, Equity, Intimacy"

    All relationships are grounded in attraction; in fact, gravitation is the foundation of our universe. In GRAVITY: Conversations with "G," it is discussed how everything attracts, including Hydrogen and Oxygen which makes H2O as the water in which we're composed. Although the science of Social Psychology focuses on human attraction, we are made of the same chemicals or atoms that scientists in physics explore. From the very beginning of creation, atoms came together to form molecules; stars; planets; then, other complex organisms or creatures like us.

    In fact, as referenced in the above text, Earth is a giant ball of atoms made of people, flora, fauna, and other nouns that attract each other. If gravitation did not occur, nothing would come together. Humans are no different than other atomic structures that attract.

    Social Psychology defines attraction as, "...positive feelings about another person. It can take many forms, including liking, love, friendship, lust, and admiration." Every current or future event has gravitation or attraction at its core. North Central College outlines dozens of real-world examples relative to the social psych concept of attraction.

    Sample Event: Love Attraction
    In the United Kingdom, Prince William, the elder son of Prince of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, married Kate Middleton and the date has been declared a bank holiday in celebration.

    Who is Prince William? Who is Kate Middleton? How did they meet? What made gravitate or "fall" in love as is gravity's signature of falling? What was/is their source of attraction? Why did they choose each other? How does Social Psychology describe the attraction of love? Where are they now: how's their relationship going as a "current" celebrity event in Brittan? Are they still married, and if so, are they expecting offspring? What are attractions are related to their relationship in terms of the media, their day-to-day activities, other UK residents, their future, and so on?

    References

    Entries are organized alphabetically by surnames of first authors and are formatted with a hanging indent. Most reference entries have three components:
    1. Authors: Authors are listed in the same order as specified in the source, using surnames and initials. Commas separate all authors. When there are seven or more authors, list the first six and then use "et al." for remaining authors. If no author is identified, the title of the document begins the reference.
    2. Year of Publication: In parenthesis following authors, with a period following the closing parenthesis. If no publication date is identified, use "n.d." in parenthesis following the authors.
    3. Source Reference: Includes title, journal, volume, pages (for a journal article) or title, city of publication, publisher (for the book).
