Relationship science is a multidisciplinary field which draws from subject areas such as psychology, biology, and sociology. A variety of perspectives all converge to help determine what leads some relationships to flourish, while others are doomed to fail. This talk will take a look at the psychological research aimed at understanding attraction and love, through the lens of one of the greatest sitcoms of all time: Seinfeld.
