Relationship Needs of College Students.
Martin, Debra Faye
The purpose of this study was to investigate the attributes which college students use to describe a desired mate or relationship needs. The sample consisted of 108 students, of which 58 were females and 50 were males. The following independent variables were investigated: gender, age, relationship status, and family structure. The dependent variables were the scores from the following subscales: Attractiveness, Personality Traits, Affection/Communication, Sexual Fulfillment, Recreation/Social, Female Primary Love Needs, and Male Primary Love Needs. Four composite null hypotheses were tested at the .05 level. A three-way analysis of variance (general linear model) was employed for each composite null hypothesis. A total of 140 comparisons were made plus 140 recurring comparisons. Of the 140 comparisons, 40 were for main effects and 100 were for interactions. Of the forty comparisons for main effects, nine were statistically significant at the .05 level. Of the one-hundred comparisons for interactions, ten were statistically significant at the .05 level. Generalizations concerning the results are provided. The survey instrument is appended. Contains 17 references. (Author/BF)
