For the following question, use this passage Love notes 1 How do you communicate when you’re in love? What do you say? What do you do non-verbally? According to research, you exaggerate your beloved’s virtues and minimize his or her faults. You share emotions and experiences and speak tenderly, with an extra degree of courtesy, to each other, “please,” “thank you,” and similar polite expressions abound. You frequently use “personalized communication.” this type of communication includes secrets you keep from other people and messages that have meaning only within your specific relationship. You create and use personal idioms(and pet names): words, phrases and gestures that carry meaning only for the particular relationship and that say you have a special language that signifies your special bond.(When outsiders try to use personal idioms- as they sometimes do -the expressions seem inappropriate, at times even an invasion of privacy.) clearly, communicating love is accomplished through a variety of ways. 2 Other ways of communicating love are seen in specific behaviors. You engage in significant self disclosure. There is more confirmation and less disconfirmation among lovers than among either non lovers or those who are going through romantic breakups. Consequently, you tend to agree with your loved one’s views and defend his or her beliefs. You’re highly aware of what is and is not appropriate to say to the person you love. You know how to reward, but also how to punish, each other. In short, you know what to do to obtain the reaction you want. 3 Non verbally, you also communicate your love. Prolonged and focused eye contact is perhaps the clearest nonverbal indicator of love. So important is eye contact that its avoidance almost always triggers a “what’s” wrong?” response. You also have longer periods of silence than you do with friends. In addition, you display affiliative cues( signs that show you love the other person), including head nods, gestures, and forward leaning. And you give Duchenne smiles- smiles that are beyond voluntary control and that signal genuine joy. These smiles give you crow’s- feet around the eyes, raise up your cheeks, and puff up the lower eyelids. 4 You grow more aware not only of your loved one but also of your own physical self. Your muscle tone is heightened, for example. When you’re in love you engage in preening gestures, especially immediately prior to meeting your love, and you position your body attractively- stomach pulled in, shoulders square, legs arranged in appropriate masculine or feminine positions. Your speech may even have a somewhat different vocal quality. There is some evidence to show that physical attraction enlarges the nasal membranes, which introduces a certain nasal quality into the voice. 5 You eliminate socially taboo gestures, at least in the presence of the loved one. For example, you curtail scratching your head, picking your teeth, cleaning your ears, and biting your fingernails. Interestingly enough, these adaptors often return after lovers have achieved a permanent relationship. 6 You touch more frequently and more intimately. You also use more “tie signs.” nonverbal gestures that show that you’re together, such as holding hands, walking with arms entwined, kissing, and the like. You may even dress alike. The styles of clothes and even the colors selected by lovers are more similar than those worn by non lovers.
