I have noticed that psychology was absolutely right in the rule of applying first dates with intensified emotions and linking those emotions with the person that happened to be with you at the time. I was once on a date where we went to the county fair; and the ride broke down with us on it, and I had never been so terrified locked in a cage ride dangling sideways for 45 minutes while they fixed the ride. I ended up having a very strong sense of trust and attachment with that person and we actually dated for about 9 months after that.
