I'm currently writing an essay for a Sociology class(Sociology of Everyday life), my topic was on love and prior to the essay we had to write three proposals for our essay addressing our topic with a focus on the micro-sociological aspect of it.
The problem is all three of my proposals got shot down and the instructor's notes on what was wrong about it are not very clear, other than they were 'too macro'.
Our essays are supposed to a sort of response to a micro-sociological question that we come up with, and this is where I am stuck.
Is love a socially constructed concept? <---Is this a micro question?
Do personal relationships differ from group to group? <---is this?
Thanks for any help.

I'm sorry but that link does not help me. If you could provide a link with EXAMPLES of micro-sociological questions, that would be helpful.
And yes, I have already tried googling 'Microsociological question examples'
