having a secret relationship is a pain, and it's not very satisfying. other than Romeo and Juliet, littile evidence exists to suggest that keeping relationships secret may increase lovers attractions to one another. It's an impotent question they argue, given that people have many reasons to keep relationships secret. the people who have to keep their love a secret may worry more about disclosing their love. they will perhaps have to meet in inconvenient locations or at inconvenient times. and will be unable to attend public functions together.
