The Effects of Physical Attractiveness and Anxiety on Heterosexual Attraction Over a Series of Five Encounters
Mathes, Eugene W.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 37, 4, 769-772, Nov 75

It was found that both physical attractiveness and the personality variable, anxiety, had early and continuous effects on liking. It was concluded the model is an inadequate explanation of heterosexual attraction. (Author)
