As more and more of us turn to websites and apps to find our “match,” we are moving into uncharted territory. Where we once had to rely on meeting people in real life (IRL), we can now select boxes, leading to an array of potential partners. This talk will take a look at the field of relationship science. We will discuss basic human needs, as well as factors of interpersonal attraction. In addition, we will learn a technique to estimate the size of our dating pool, as well as share some take-home tips to enhance our existing relationships.
