Associations Between Reasons for Dating, Orientation, Commitment and Behavior: Verification of a Study by McDaniel.
Gittman, Elizabeth
A study of dating behavior by McDaniel was replicated, using a single adult population instead of college undergraduates. The hypothesis stated that recreational dating was associated with peer orientation, low commitment and assertive behavior; that mate selection dating was associated with family orientation, medium commitment and assertive-receptive behavior; and that anticipatory socialization dating was associated with personal orientation, high commitment and receptive behavior. Computation of product moment correlation coefficients provided evidence that none of the predicted associations were supported by the data except those predicting a relationship between anticipatory socialization and high commitment, and anticipatory socialization and receptive behavior. High product moment correlation coefficients between variables indicated that there may be confounding of variables on the McDaniel instrument. (Author)
