The last time the Annual Review of Psychology dealt with the psychology of relationships was in 1978, when Huston & Levinger discussed recent adÂ vances in the study of attraction and relationships. Eighty percent of that research, they mai ntai ned, i nvolved subjects who were "personally irreleÂ va nt" to each other, in the sense that they had never met before, did not expect to see each other in the future, and might not come face-to-face during the study. Perhaps because this paradigm seemed to many psychologists limited i n its usefulness for u nderstanding relationships, and perhaps because William Proxmire's bestowal of a "Golden Fleece" award upon some of the best work in this area made such research politically problematic, research activity waned in the late 1 970s and early 1980s. Fortu nately, with a tum toward more realistic laboratory and naturalistic research designs, this decline has been reversed in recent years, so that in the ebb and flow of research productivity, close relationships are once again riding a wave of growing e nthusiasm.
