The different possible dynamics of a two-person romantic relationship are modeled -- as a linear two dimensional system of equations -- and analyzed. Students are guided to explore how the mathematical model of one relationship type can be obtained by modifying the mathematical model of another. Students are further guided to analyze each type of relationship using only phase portraits.
