Romance and Risk: Romantic Attraction and Health Risks in the Process of Relationship Formation
Unformatted Document Text:  8 of “the 15 most important” by at least some respondents. There was, however, considerable variation with 80% saying it was important to know about a potential partners “Appearance” (i.e., was he or she beautiful/handsome, attractive/pretty, cute or average?) but less than 4% saying it was important to know something about a potential partner’s “Accessories” (i.e., whether a potential partner had piercing, wore glasses, had a laptop case, or had a tattoo). Overall, 13 of the 36 relationship attributes were selected by more than half of the total sample and only 6 attributes were selected by less than 25%. Table 1 here Many of the most salient attributes were those having to do with more enduring “personality” characteristics. What was somewhat surprising was the fact that relatively few respondents felt it was important to know about demographics. For example, approximately 60% felt it was important to know about a potential partner’s “communication style”, “self-concept”, and “personal philosophy.” And while about 60% also thought it was important to know about a potential partners “age”, only 52% felt it was important to know about a potential partner’s “educational level”, 45% were concerned about a potential partner’s “marital status”, 31% wanted to know about a potential partner’s “religion”, 26% felt “ethnicity” was important, and 21% felt it was important to know something about a potential partner’s “income”.

of “the 15 most important” by at least some respondents. There
was, however, considerable variation with 80% saying it was
important to know about a potential partners “Appearance” (i.e.,
was he or she beautiful/handsome, attractive/pretty, cute or
average?) but less than 4% saying it was important to know
something about a potential partner’s “Accessories” (i.e., whether
a potential partner had piercing, wore glasses, had a laptop case,
or had a tattoo). Overall, 13 of the 36 relationship attributes
were selected by more than half of the total sample and only 6
attributes were selected by less than 25%.
Table 1 here
Many of the most salient attributes were those having to do
with more enduring “personality” characteristics. What was
somewhat surprising was the fact that relatively few respondents
felt it was important to know about demographics. For example,
approximately 60% felt it was important to know about a
potential partner’s “communication style”, “self-concept”, and
“personal philosophy.” And while about 60% also thought it was
important to know about a potential partners “age”, only 52% felt
it was important to know about a potential partner’s “educational
level”, 45% were concerned about a potential partner’s “marital
status”, 31% wanted to know about a potential partner’s
“religion”, 26% felt “ethnicity” was important, and 21% felt it
was important to know something about a potential partner’s
“income”.
