What the latest research says about the benefits and risks of growing close
And the attentions she lavishes on her lover, who we're given to believe is on the verge of leaving his wife, seem like the adorably impulsive gestures of a besotted gamine. And as the movie undertakes hairpin turns, its incessant repetition eventually curdles into something sinister.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not by Iris Morland
When we become close to another person we begin to include aspects of their self-concept in our own selves. However, the flip side to opening up and growing close, especially in the early stages of a relationship, is that we make ourselves vulnerable to getting emotionally hurt. The researchers were interested in some of the mechanisms people use to balance the costs and benefits of getting close vs. With this in mind, the researchers focused on the cues people use to help them decide whether or not to become close to another person.
They tested two such indicators that people may look for in a partner: 1 how satisfied a partner seems with the relationship, and 2 how close to us the partner seems to feel. It is how close to us the partner seems to feel that is the key to helping us decide how comfortable we are with growing close to our partner.
Instead, be emotionally bold and dare to openly and honestly talk to your partner about how you are feeling and ask them how they are feeling. Be aware that there are things going in both you and your partner that subconsciously send signals to your partner as to how close you feel to them. Consider having a fun discussion pointing out how each of you have gained or grown as individuals by being introduced to new things by the partner. Tomlinson, J. In Press.
