Thesis Statement: Does beauty really lie in the eye of the beholder? Or is there a universal consensus based on a scientific / logical reasoning behind the same? What factors influence and govern the laws of attraction? The intriguing concept of ‘attraction’ has fascinated individuals, researchers and psychologists alike. This paper on Love and relationships attempts to access, analyze and study the various factors surrounding the same and probe deeper into the factors governing attraction in a bid to unravel the mystery behind this captivating and unique human emotion. There have been various studies conducted to assess and analyze the reasons behind attraction, and to ascertain the factors which attract one individual to the other. Social psychologists, over the years, have identified several factors which contribute to such an attraction. These include: similarity, physical attractiveness, exposure/ proximity, reciprocity, perceived fallibility and suitability among many others (Nevid, 2011. Pastorino &amp. Doyle-Portillo, 2011. Hayes, 2000). Similarity: This factor suggests that people are generally attracted towards those who exhibit and share features, attitudes, values and beliefs similar to one’s own. Individual are more likely to feel attracted towards others with similar characteristics such as physical appearance, race, socio-economic backgrounds, tastes and preferences, level of intelligence etc. This is also considered to be one of the reasons why people are far more likely to befriend those who share similar religious and cultural values since similarity is gratifying and the similar values and beliefs shared by an individual are enhanced, validated, and reinforced by others with similar attitudes and beliefs. People belonging to different backgrounds are hence highly likely to differ and have contrasting beliefs and ideologies, thus resulting in considerable differences of opinions among them (Nevid, 2011). Physical attractiveness: Various studies have shown that individuals are more likely to react positively and/ or favorably to people who they find physically attractive. Evidence suggests that people are far more likely to feel attracted towards others who are physically attractive. According to a study conducted by Fitness, Fletcher &amp. Overall (2003) on a bunch of college students it was observed that when left to interact with a couple of unacquainted men and women, individuals (i.e. both men and women) although communication played a key role in determining their partners, their physical attractiveness (of both the sexes) was what initially compelled them to choose the person whom they would like to interact with. This shows that people in general are likely to be attracted and form positive opinions and perspectives about others who are physically attractive. Exposure / Proximity: Proximity refers to geographical closeness and is one of the key determinants of interpersonal attraction. The level of attraction is directly related to the kind of exposure one has to others. If there is a high level of exposure and / or proximity then the level of attraction is relatively higher as well and vice versa.
