The propinquity effect is the tendency for people to form friendships or romantic relationships with those whom they encounter often, forming a bond between subject and friend.

Guess that is why there are so few lasting friendships developed in the cooler.

Thanks a_g! I would say that your definition and DeeQ's definition share a certain, shall we say, propinquity.

Pat Robertson started it....>>>

BTW - What is "inquity"? I know what INIQUITY is, but am a bit flummoxed over "inquity." Do you have a more pedagogic version?

ETA: Wait - I see it now - we all giving "Props and Pins" for inquity. Ah - that makes more sense.

So Pale - we getting along better in a pedagogic way?
