“Socioromanticism”….yeah, you SHOULD do something with that. Very interesting idea. Sorry for such a scant response, but I’ve got a busy day ahead of me and didn’t want to keep you hanging any longer with a response. I’m going to add to this later, but for now I’ll leave it at this: you’re right about friendships and romantic relationships being very dissimilar (well, in some ways), but do you think that the same general principles and personality types are going to be factors in determining one’s friendships/romances? I guess this is similar to the question you already asked, but to give an example, my best friend is very emotional and prone to bouts of melancholy, but still has me, a relatively emotionally stoic, blunter person, as his best friend. His girlfriend? Similar to me in that regard. She isn’t as emotionally needy either, and has a tendency not to mince words. So, Dr. V, what is your diagnosis of the situation? Mere coincidence? Or is there all sorts of psychological/societal factors at work here?
