Abstract: Although the complexity of post-divorce communication has garnered recent research attention (Ahrons, 2007; Afifi & Schrodt, 2003b; Baum, 2004; Graham, 2003), little is known about the process of dating after divorce. The process of dating as a divorcee can be especially problematic for individuals with children, as they must manage developing dating relationships while raising children and often staying in touch with their former spouses. These complexities create a seemingly unconventional approach when compared with traditional dating practices. In the current investigation, the researcher conducted 35 interviews with divorced coparents. Using Smith’s (1995) process of thematic analysis, the researcher uncovered that coparents struggle with balancing dating and parenting, and the difficulties they experienced in coping with divorce often affected their dating decisions and behaviors. Also, participants struggled in knowing what, if anything, they should reveal to their children and former spouses about their dating.

Abstract: Exner-Cortens (2014) highlighted the potentially bidirectional relationship between internalizing symptoms and relationship qualities posited by Sullivan’s interpersonal theory (1953) as a complex outcome of dating abuse victimization. Data come from three waves of the national Survey on Teen Relationships and Intimate Violence (STRiV). The study sample is n=266 youth (ages 10-18) in dating relationships at all three waves. Significant effects in multivariable analyses confirmed a negative correlation between baseline internalizing behaviors and perceptions of communications awkwardness. Among the baseline relationship characteristics, only the measure of controlling behaviors predicted wave 2 victimization. Baseline internalizing symptoms were not associated with victimization at follow-up. Wave 2 victimization significantly predicted subsequent internalizing symptoms and was negatively associated with subsequent intimate self-disclosure. We found evidence of an association between internalizing symptoms and select dating relationship qualities, supporting theory that depression would be related to romantic partnership intimacy. Use of these longitudinal data to understand how individual mental health and the relationship qualities of the intimate partnership correlate contemporaneously, the extent to which they function as predictors of subsequent victimization, and the extent to which they are a consequence of relationship victimization may be instructive for both clinical services and prevention programming.

Abstract: Dating is a highly desirable experience during adolescence and serves as an important developmental milestone. Healthy dating provides teens with multiple positive outcomes; however, adolescent dating experiences are not always healthy. Although rates of teen dating violence vary across studies, there is a general consensus that dating violence is a significant public health problem for adolescents. This study explored healthy and unhealthy dating as a step toward improving adolescent well-being through a series of six focus group interviews with high school aged girls and boys (N = 35). Interviews were audio recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed using a grounded theory approach. Youth were asked to describe what dating was like for teens their age, including dating problems. Narrative analyses indicated four distinct stages of dating: (1) “Getting in” reflected the period before dating started, often described as hypothetical situations emphasizing youths’ ideas of romance and the social value that teens place romantic relationships. (2) “Being in” reflected aspects of healthy relationships, including what youth do in a relationship, concepts of exclusivity, and the importance of trust and respect for each other. (3) “Staying in” reflected unhealthy dating and dating violence, specifically what it is like to stay in a relationship considered to be problematic or irritating, but generally would be deemed by professionals as dating violence. (4) “Getting out” of a bad relationship was perceived as challenging, requiring significant outside support. Practice implications for each stage emphasize developmentally timed universal health education starting in middle school. In particular, health programming is needed to improve adolescents’ skills for identifying unhealthy relationships to minimize “staying in”, and for “getting out” safely and respectfully. Future research will need to validate these four emergent themes, as well as integrate this information with the extant literature on the contexts of dating across the social ecology.

Abstract: Online dating has become an important resource for building romantic relationships. Thereby attitudinal similarities and group-membership have been found to be just as important for online as for offline dating. Research on terror management theory has shown that both similarity and group-membership play a key role in managing existential threats, indicating difficulties for either dissimilar or intergroup couples. Yet, no study—so far—has investigated both factors simultaneously after mortality salience (MS).
The current study examined this question by presenting German participants (N=249) with a bogus dating-app that randomly assigned them to a MS or a control condition. Afterwards a candidate following a 2(In- vs. Out-group member) × 2(Similar vs. Dissimilar) design was suggested. Results confirmed the expected three-way interaction. After MS, in contrast to the control group, similarity increased only the desire to date in- but not out-group members. The role of existential threats for intergroup relationships is discussed.
