The Two Factors that Lead to Attraction
Proximity and Physical Attractiveness
Geographical nearness, which powerfully predicts liking.
The tendency for novel stimuli to be liked more or rated more positively after repeated exposure to them.
We expect people to be with others of their own physical attractiveness, or to bring something into the relationship that equals it out if it doesn't.
The Physical Attractiveness Stereotype
Essentially the halo effect for attractive people; the belief that attractive people possess other socially desirable traits.
In the belief that opposites attract, that people fall for those who "complete them."
