They say that routine is detrimental to relationships and, in general, “love lives for 3 years,” so psychologists give a lot of all sorts of advice that can prolong this wonderful feeling. Psychologist Arthur Aron (Arthur Aron) conducted a study that, on the one hand, claims the title “God, why, this is obvious!”, And on the other, it seems much more truthful than hundreds of other methods.
The experiments of the psychologist are based on the same long-known formula: spend more time together. But the trick is how exactly this time must pass.
We are in AdMe.ru made a small test and suggest you guess which of the options for joint leisure activities are more likely to strengthen the attachment in a pair.
Sit each in your smartphone or walk together?
Hanging out, holding hands, or playing snowballs?
Watch a funny TV series or drive carts around the supermarket?
According to Arthur’s research, more than actively and unusually you spend time together, the higher the level of satisfaction with the relationships of both partners. The lowest results within the framework of the experiment were recorded for couples who, being close by, were engaged in everyday, daily activities, but at the same time were not in contact.
We picked up the situation more difficult – which option is more effective in your opinion?
