PSYC 336: Interpersonal Relationships
What Is A Relationship?
A relationship can be defined in many different ways. There may be interaction, emotion,
or reliance. Two relationships could be completely different and incomparable.
The Need to Belong
A powerful drive to establish intimate connections to others.
Six Components of Intimacy – (Neither necessary nor sufficient)
Knowledge – you know a lot about them, share secrets
Caring – emotional care for someone
Interdependence – both partners have influence on each other pragmatically. Intimate
partners have strong, diverse, and enduring influence on each other
Mutuality – intimate partners think of themselves as a couple instead of as two entirely
separate individuals. You cognitively merge.

Groups – the types of groups you associate with affect your relationships
Time – you can belong to the same groups but have a different culture if you’re born
