Love assignment

Purpose
Where does love come from? In this assignment, you will describe and apply five different theories that attempt to answer this question:
o    Behavioral reinforcement
o    Cognitive
o    Physiological
o    Evolutionary
o    Biological

Directions
To demonstrate your understanding of each of these theories of love, you can choose ONE of the following to submit:

1. Imagine you work for the local newspaper and have been asked to create a “Love Questionnaire” that will help someone know if they are really “in love”! You will need to ask 5 questions to assess each of the 5 theories of love. The questions on your questionnaire should be logically connected to the theory. For example, for the physiological theory, I might ask, “When you imagine your love interest, does your heart rate speed up?” Your questionnaire should have a total of 25 questions.

OR

2. Imagine that you are a romance novelist. Write a brief story line involving a budding romance between two individuals for each of the five theories of love. How would the romance start out and play out differently for the couple based on each theory? Your story lines should be logically connected to each theory. Your final work should have a total of 5 story lines.
