2014 09 10 Colloquium Flyer

This talk will address latest research on intimate secret-keeping and catfishing, which is defined as online deception with the intent to pursue a romantic relationship. In general, secret-keeping and catfishing are associated with negative outcomes but have potential positives. Also discussed will be research on couple rituals, which falls at the opposite end of the “knowing your partner” continuum. Couple rituals involve repeated and meaningful behaviors that help partners build a collective identity.
