The Science of Attraction and Relationships: Are All the Good Ones Taken?

holding hands intimately

Event Date

Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences

Romantic relationships are fundamental to our lives and central to our happiness and well-being, but people harbor a number of misconceptions about how they work. For example, it seems intuitive that some people have more desirable traits than other people do, and this leads to the sense that there are “winners” and “losers” in the game of human mating. Dr. Paul Eastwick is a Professor in the psychology department at the University of California, Davis. His research investigates how people initiate romantic relationships and the psychological mechanisms that help romantic partners to remain committed and attached. His talk will draw from contemporary behavioral research to challenge some of these longstanding assumptions about the way that people form and maintain relationships over time.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. No-host bar available.
