Description

The present study examined to what extent adolescent dating desire is based on attractiveness and social status of a potential short-term partner.

Further, we tested whether self-perceived mate value moderated the relationship between dating desire and attractiveness of a potential partner. Data were used from a sample of 1, adolescents aged 13— Participants rated the importance of various characteristics of a potential partner and also participated in an experimental vignette study in which dating desire was measured with either low or high attractive potential partners having either a high or low social Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen. The results showed that boys rated attractiveness as more important than girls, while social status was rated as relatively unimportant by both sexes.

For girls, on the other hand, it appeared that both attractiveness and social status of a potential partner were important for their dating desire. Finally, boys and girls who perceived themselves as having a high Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen value showed more dating desire toward an attractive potential partner compared to adolescents who perceived themselves as having a low mate value.

The present results extend previous research by showing that attractiveness of a potential partner is important to both adolescent boys and girls, but social status does not strongly affect dating desire during this particular age period. Evolutionary psychologists propose that men and women have different Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen that underlie short-term mating.

While women invest nine months in pregnancies and even more years to raise their offspring e. Consequently, the benefits of short-term mating differ for men and women. The main benefit of short-term mating for men is that it maximizes their number of sexual mates and therefore their number of offspring Schmitt et al.

Although previous studies provided valuable knowledge on short-term mate preferences, most studies reviewed here exclusively relied on questionnaires in which respondents explicitly rated the importance of various characteristics. These answers could be biased by social desirability and might not measure actual influences of mate preferences.

So far, the vast majority of empirical research focusing on SST has been conducted with adults. Moreover, it is during these years that the human brain undergoes maturational changes that lead to many profound physical changes, such as the development of breasts in girls and the growth of facial hair in boys Spear, These biological and physical changes are accompanied by psychological changes, such as an increasing interest in relationships with opposite-sex peers and sexual fantasies, which also Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen the development of active sexual strategies in adolescents Buss, Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen Consequently, dating goals and desire may be different for adolescents than for adults.

For adolescents, for example, dating might primarily be a context in which one experiments with sexual experiences as such Feiring, In the present study, attractiveness was defined as the global attractiveness of a potential short-term partner for a date. Nevertheless, Eyre, Read, and Millstein found that, compared to girls, boys reported using more dating strategies that emphasized spending of money, which might serve as an indicator of high social status for girls.

Thus, although it is known that adult women prefer partners with a high social status, it is unclear whether it is important for adolescent girls as well. Possibly, because adolescents do not have much experience with different sexual strategies, they are less skilled in estimating which partners they Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen attract.

Consequently, they may aim Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen the best partner possible in terms of both attractiveness and social status. We investigated this question based on 1 data from survey questions about their partner preferences and 2 data from an experimental vignette study.

Importantly, we scrutinized these hypotheses controlling for potential confounder effects of variation in relationship experiences and current relationship status. All adolescents taking part in the study were enrolled in average or higher-level education i. In this sample, In the original sample, five adolescents were involved in homosexual relationships. Due to the very small number, and to perform the analyses on only heterosexual participants, they were omitted from further analyses.

In total, The remaining 1, The majority of the relationships We randomly selected 17 secondary schools in the Netherlands, which were sent an introductory letter and who were contacted by telephone shortly after. Classroom assessments were conducted from January to March Data of the current study were collected as part of a broader Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen on social skills and general dating behaviors.

We received approval for conducting the present study of the ethical committee of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Radboud University of Nijmegen. Before the onset of the study, information about the study was sent to parents. Parents could refuse to give consent for participation of their child in the study and two explicit refusals of parents were recorded.

Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen pupils consented to participation in the study. Further, all pupils were ensured that their information would not be given to any third party e. Next to the female researcher or a female research assistant one teacher was present during the assessments. The teacher, however, was instructed to keep a low profile during the assessment and only responded to questions if adolescents specifically asked for their teacher.

During the assessment, pupils were not allowed to discuss their answers with other pupils. Part of the questionnaire was the vignette experiment, which had to be completed at the beginning of the questionnaire.

Other items in the questionnaires were completed after Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen vignette Facetime phone sex in Ras al Khaymah. Adolescents were randomly given either attractive or Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen attractive pictures of a person of the opposite sex. Above the pictures, a description of either a high or low social status person was provided.

We used photographs of faces of attractive and less attractive adolescent boys and girls, which were selected from various sites on the internet, among which websites of modeling agencies.

During the selection of the pictures, we carefully matched the pictures on various picture characteristics, such as picture quality, angle of picture, and framing.

These adolescents rated the four photographs on a 7-point overall attractiveness scale. The order in which the panel viewed the photographs was balanced, so no order effects could bias the outcome.

Paired t -tests showed that the picture of the less attractive girl was rated by boys as significantly less attractive than the picture of the more attractive girl: Similarly, girls rated the picture of the less attractive boy as significantly less attractive than the picture of the more attractive boy: Regarding the manipulation of social status, the description of either high or low social status was provided together with the attractive or less attractive picture.

These descriptions were adapted from a previous experimental study and were known to successfully discriminate between high and low social status Van Straaten et al. In the present study, the high social status person was enrolled in the highest education program in the Netherlands, had more upper-class hobbies i. Adolescents with a relationship were asked to answer the questions as if they were not having a relationship. Adolescents were asked to rate the importance of each characteristic of a potential future partner on a point scale ranging from 1 not important at all to 10 very important.

Independent t -tests for importance of characteristics for potential partners by sex. The numbers in parentheses for girls refer to their rank ordering of each of the 21 characteristics. S he does not know many people. Relationship experience was measured in terms of how many relationships the participant had ever been involved in. It appeared that the same factors arose for boys and girls.

To investigate which characteristics of a potential future partner were important for adolescents, t -tests were conducted to test sex differences.

Girls, however, generally rated these characteristics as more important than boys. A strong sex difference was found in terms of attractiveness, which was rated as the fourth most important characteristic by boys and only as the tenth most important characteristic by girls. Concerning social status, both boys and girls attached relatively little importance to the characteristics ambitious, finished education, high salary, and good family background. However, girls rated the characteristics ambitious and finished education as significantly more important than boys.

There were no significant sex differences for high salary and good family background. In order to examine whether dating desire was related to attractiveness and social status, a 2 Attractiveness: Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen desire was the dependent variable and age, relationship status, and previous relationship experience were included as covariates.

Means and SD s of dating desire for sex on condition attractiveness and social status. Data for groups of low and high social status are presented within the low and high attractiveness conditions.

For boys, the potential confounder relationship status was not significantly related to dating desire. In contrast, age and relationship experience were significantly related to dating desire, indicating that boys who were older and had more relationship experience reported more dating desire. After controlling for these variables, the significant main effects of attractiveness and social status were qualified by the interaction effect of attractiveness x social status.

For girls, the potential confounders age, relationship status, and previous relationship experience were not significantly related to dating desire. After controlling for these variables, significant main effects of attractiveness and social status were found, indicating that girls showed more dating desire in the attractive and in the high social status condition. Again, a 2 Attractiveness: This time, however, self-perceived mate value SPMV was included in the models as a moderator. For boys, no significant effects were found for the control variables relationship status and relationship experience.

For girls, no significant effects were found for the control variables age, relationship status, and relationship experience. Research on SST has been dominated by studies using young adult samples. When explicitly asked to rate various characteristics of a potential partner, boys rated attractiveness as more important than girls. Social status was not very important for both boys and girls.

Finally, we found that self-perceived mate value moderated the relationship between attractiveness and dating desire for both boys and girls. Specifically, adolescents who perceived themselves as having a high mate value showed more dating desire if the other person was attractive compared to adolescents who perceived themselves as having a lower mate value.

This might imply that previous findings on sexual strategies that were exclusively based on self-report ratings had underestimated the importance of attractiveness, in particular for girls. Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen studies on adult samples also indicated that both men and women strive for attractive short-term mates Buunk et al. Our study showed that the tendency to seek attractive partners for short-term mating can also be found in adolescents who are at the beginning of their relationship Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen and still have little experience with dating.

For boys, on the contrary, social status of the potential partner would be less important due to their minimal parental investment. The present results supported this hypothesized sex difference partly. For boys, however, social status was important only Seeking an intelligent friend in Nijmegen the potential partner was attractive. Although in comparison to the importance of attractiveness for adolescent dating desire, social status was a minor short-term strategy.

Apparently, adolescents do not attach much importance to finding a partner who has a high social status. This may be explained by the fact that, in adolescence, sexual behaviors are just beginning to emerge and adolescents still live at home with parents. Hence, it is possible that social status will become increasingly important during the transition into adulthood, when individuals need to become independent and have to take care of themselves. Moreover, it is not until then when differences between indicators of social status of a potential short-term partner become clear e.
