1. Miller, Aimee. "Dating as a Divorced Parent: Difficulties in Making Dating Decisions and Balancing Dating and Parenting" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p258210_index.html>

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: This study attempted to reveal and discuss how Meeting with Mother-in-Law, a Chinese blind date reality show, reflects glocalized cultural elements in urban areas in China. The study also analyzed how Chinese media practitioners balance market needs and governmental regulations through examining the role of judges in the show. By conducting textual analysis on eight episodes of Meeting with Mother-in-Law, the study revealed that the show reconstructed gender roles and reinterpreted Western values within a local context, which is a result of cultural hybridization. In addition, the study discussed how judges cautiously monitor the conversations to make the show appealing to the public without violating state regulations.

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: 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.
