The nuance of romance with Mandy Len Catron

Mandy Len Catron found herself standing on a bridge at midnight, holding intense and ongoing eye contact with a stranger. Because, well – science. Inspired by psychologist Arthur Aron's study about accelerating the intimacy of strangers, Catron asked her date a series of Aron's laboratory-designed personal questions – thirty-six, to be exact – each one more revealing than the last.

Reader, they fell in love.

Melding science, emotion and culture, Catron's book, How to Fall in Love with Anyone, explores the nature of vulnerability, cultural myths about relationships and the ways you can find enduring love. Join her as she embarks on an examination of romance that is full of heart.
