Communicating our attraction

The amount of interaction we have with someone indicates the level of attraction in the relationship.

-When we are attracted to people, we use both indirect and direct strategies to communicate our liking though nonverbal and verbal cues.

-NV cues are often referred to as immediacy: feelings of liking, pleasure, and closeness communicated by such nonverbal cues as eye contact, forward lean, touch, and open body orientation.

-Immediacy behaviors work to reduce the physical and psychological distance between persons.
