Stop being accomadating in relationships
As time passes and intimacy grows, the layers of one's personality begin to unfold to reveal the core of the person.Three major factors influence self-revelation and begin the process of the onion theory, which are personal characteristics, reward/cost assessments, and the situational context.The social penetration theory is known as an objective theory as opposed to an interpretive theory, meaning that it is based on data drawn from experiments and not from conclusions based on individuals' specific experiences.The social penetration theory states that the relationship development occurs primarily through self-disclosure, or intentionally revealing personal information such as personal motives or desires, feelings, thoughts, and experiences to others.Many are more than willing to make the man the priority, almost to the exclusion of themselves. Perhaps a genetic throwback drives a primitive urge to conquer.
Women will ask, “How come he just can’t love me back? ” They will then try to do whatever they think will bring them the love they want.The theory was formulated by psychologists Irwin Altman and Dalmas Taylor in 1973 to understand relationship development between individuals.Altman and Taylor note that relationships "involve different levels of intimacy of exchange or degree of social penetration".Altman and Taylor believe that opening inner self to other is the main route to reach to intimate relationships.As for the speed of self-disclosure, Altman and Taylor were convinced that the process of social penetration moves a lot faster in the beginning stages of a relationship and slows considerably.
