Abstract

The purpose of the current study was to examine the differences between men and women’s perceived importance placed on both wealth and physical attractiveness when looking for a short-term verses long-term mate. Participants were asked to rate the importance of both financial well-being and physical attractiveness on a 7-point scale, “-3” representing an attribute of no importance, and +3 representing an attribute of absolute importance. Data will be analyzed using a 2 x 2 Analysis of Variance. Implications of the obtained findings and future directions will be discussed.
