University students were randomly paired up. Half the pairs were asked to make small talk, while the other half were given questions designed to build intimacy, such as "What does friendship mean to you?", "For what do you feel most grateful?", and "What one item would you save if your house was burning?". The intimacy exercise worked so well that one pair of participants got married.
