Elliot Aronson//Social Animal

... as a relationship moves toward greater intimacy, what becomes increasingly important is authenticity - our ability to give up trying to make a good impression and begin to reveal things about ourselves that are honest, even if unsavory... authenticity implies a willingness to communicate a wide range of feelings to our friends and loved ones, under appropriate circunstances and in ways that reflect our caring... if two people are genuinely fond of each other, they will have a more satisfying and eciting relationship over a longer period if they are able to express both positive and negative feelings about each other, as well as about themselves...
