The Benjamin Franklin Effect | The Science of Love

When you do nice things for your significant other, it actually makes you like them more.

It’s an idea rooted in “The Benjamin Franklin Effect” — a psychological phenomenon, discovered by the founding father himself, that suggests we grow to like people for whom we do nice things.
