Power of Love and Relationships
Within this paper I will be discussing power of love and relationships, by describing the factors of attraction. What attracts us to one another? Why are we less likely to befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? Be sure to identify and describe all six factors in attraction. As well as discuss the human need to build bonds and relationships. Do we have an innate need to belong? If so, why?

While in discussing the likelihood of befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? Again it is felt that this is very dependent of the environment in which we are raised and age. Within the age of grandmother they did not grow up around other culture and it was taboo or frowned a pone to establish relationship with other cultures. While in my mother’s age there was a movement to end is segregation of cultures but there was still a great deal of people that still frowned a pone a grate deal to establish relationship with other cultures but people start establishing these relationship a bit more than they did due to the desegregation or the cultures that Mr. King fought for. That made my own marriage possible that is a multi-cultural marriage. But the question to similar physical aesthetic this does seem to be the norm, but again with age the factor change a bit more as with age people begin to see other factors to be more important. In discussing the many things that influence what make people attracted to one another as discussed above physical attractiveness, proximity, can play a key fact within attraction as well as similarity, either it being culture or education, or interest as well as reciprocity. Equitable can be very important as stated within the text the “equity theory is not the overall amount of the benefit one receives from a relationship that is important, but whether one gives and what one gets are equal.” (Feenstra, 2013)
Need to Belong and Social Bonds

How is this need attached to our emotions, our social bonds, and our fear of deprivation? The fear of not having these thing lead to many different type of personality disorder and or other mental health disorder.
Types of Love & Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love
In explaining the three types of love the first of these being is companionate love which is the beginning of a courtship that has the first parts of when you are falling in love, starting out very intense at first but over time be around each other all the time, having the dreaming feeling of being on a cloud. Over time within the courtship this intensity lessens and starts to evolve to what is known as companionate love which is much more or a committed deeper attachment that has established respect and love for one another.
