Many say that you need attraction to move into a relationship. Is that true? There are apps that may prove this to be true. Bumble and Tinder are just two apps among many that show you a photo of an individual and as you swipe up and down more photos become available. These photos are shown before the actual biography of the individual shown. In these apps, you can swipe left if you’re not interested in the way they look or if they’re not your type. You also can swipe right if you are attracted to the person physically. By showing their pictures first, this app shows that the function of the app is based mostly on the way people are attracted to each other and that is a main reason why two people “match” each other. I believe that this is true because if it wasn’t would they only show the images of the sex that you are looking for first before any other information, attraction plays a major part in a relationship.
When two individuals do match each other, it shows that they both are attracted to each other physically even though these apps make you look at the individual before you see their biography and other information. Attraction does not just happen on apps but, in person as well. Take this situation for example; a women and man are in a bar with plenty of other men and women to talk to or approach. These two keep taking glances and side smirking at one another. This is attraction. The man decides to make a move and approach the women. They hit it off and eventually start dating. Would this man have approached the women if there was no attraction between? No, because if he was not interested in the way she looked he would not have wanted to approach her and possibly make something of that. This is okay but it is sad that society works this way, attraction always comes before the emotional connection. This gentleman could have approached any other female in the bar, but he was attracted to one women that had caught his eye.
It appears in the beginning, middle and at the end. There can be two different types of attraction, physical and of course emotional. When you are attracted to someone emotionally you’ve made the first move after you’ve been attracted to the physically. In the beginning, there needs to be attraction for the relationship to start forming. Throughout the relationship, looks change and even personalities do as well some men and/or women become unattracted to their partner, either due to becoming too comfortable not to care about the way they look anymore or because they’ve gained weight. Even though it is sad and a jerk move on that individual it does occur in our society. When a relationship starts to develop, and people stay together for a long time, they usually get asked how they met. All most every story that I have heard from a long-lasting couple starts with, “I saw this beautiful woman standing across the room.” Of course, there are variations of these love stories, but many of them begin with attraction. Attraction will always be a part of relationships and will play a role in the beginning of relationships whether we prefer it or not.
