Studies have shown that within a three-month period, people interact with approximately 500 to 2500 others. Within that number, however, intimates are usually limiteq to three to seven people. Intimacy entails "high degrees of warmth and affection, trust, selfdisclosure, and commitment," according to Verderber and Verderber. lt is to this aspect of self-disclosure within the realm of intimacy that I decided to dedicate a study.
