Abstract: One of the most basic tasks in introductory social science classes is to get students to reexamine their common sense assumptions concerning human behavior. This article introduces a shared assignment developed for a learning community that paired an introductory sociology and psychology class. The assignment challenges students to rethink the widespread belief that romantic Love is a natural, normal, and inevitable part of the human condition and then encourages them to begin to use the principles of empirical research to examine the phenomena of romantic Love.
