Source text - English For some reason we are fraught with discomfort when we witness two friends or lovers who do not share reciprocal feelings for each other. One member of the pair exhibits devoted affection, while the other remains aloof. Why do we think there is something wrong with the dynamics of such a relationship? Is there something inside us that is disturbed at the thought of the relationship that is unequal, nonreciprocal, or unbalanced? The universality of the discomfort created in us by such a pair of persons suggests that reactions to “nonfitting” relationships are deeply rooted in our makeup.
Translation - Indonesian Karena beberapa alasan, ketika menemukan hubungan yang timpang antara dua orang sahabat atau sepasang kekasih, biasanya membuat kita tidak nyaman. Hubungan semacam itu terjadi saat salah satu dari pasangan tersebut menunjukkan kasih sayang sepenuhnya sementara pasangannya justru acuh. Mengapa kita merasa ada yang salah dengan kedinamisan hubungan semacam itu? Apakah hati kita tergugah bila menemukan hubungan yang tidak setara, tanpa timbal-balik, atau tidak seimbang?
Ketidaknyamanan yang tercipta dalam diri kita menimbulkan reaksi universal yang mengakar kuat dalam benak bahwa hubungan semacam itu tidaklah serasi.
