Psychology Discussion Assignment

Hayes (1995) coded over 5,000 personal ads and found that men are looking for

attractive, younger women, while women are seeking financially stable older men.

These findings can be explained socially (e.g., men are more concerned with

physical attractiveness, whereas women want a partner who is a good financial

prospect) or in evolutionary terms [e.g., younger women have a reproductive

advantage, while older males are more likely to provide shelter and security] (Baron and Branscombe, 2012).

Read
the following article and then examine the personal ads to look for
trends in age preferences, attraction, and other desireable qualities by
gender and sexual orientation. You will have to search for the article
through the library or internet.

Hayes, A.F. (1995). Age preferences for same- and opposite-sex partners. Journal of Social Psychology, 135, 125-133.
