About this class

Event Title:
SDS NYC Presents A Scientific Approach to Love With Marisa Cohen

What's Happening:
Relationship science is a multidisciplinary field which draws from subject areas such as psychology, biology, sociology, and anthropology. A variety of perspectives all converge to help determine what leads some relationships to flourish, while others are doomed to fail. This talk will focus on the factors we consider most important when looking for a potential mate. We will examine why people need interpersonal relationships; how they form, and what sometimes leads to their demise. Beyond this, we will look at what may tip the scale to create fractures within a relationship and how to avoid many common pitfalls.

Curated Matches:
Before we start the programming, each guest will get 2 curated 15 minute connections handpicked just for them based on bios submitted pre-event. Make sure to update your profile in your app with your most recent bio or email with a copy.
