A Computational Model for Dyadic Relationships

Findings: Pairs of people in all kinds of relationships tend to collocate, telecommunicate, and feel inclinations towards one and other. People will telecommunicate with and feel inclinations towards their mothers more than their significant others, and find themselves collocated with friends more often than with roommates.

Method: Collecting diaries from 54 dyads (pairs of people) containing times and frequencies of interaction.

Good For: If you are seeking to understand human relationships through a quantified set of interactions. Marketers like 1800Flowers catering to pair sets could adjust advertisements based on how we prioritize our relationships.
