Factors that contribute to attraction:
Proximity: we like/love those who are physically close to us
Interpersonal rewards: we are rewarded in relationships by others (wit, charm, goods)
Similarity: “Birds of a feather flock together”: we spend time with those who share our attitudes, values, and interests
Physical Attractiveness: can be a potent factor; persons opt for persons at the same level of physical attractiveness
