Physical Attractiveness and Courtship Progress.
White, Gregory L.
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, v39 n4 p660-68 Oct 1980
Among college students who were casual or serious daters, greater relative attractiveness was positively correlated with greater relative availability of opposite-sexed friends and negatively correlated with worrying about partner's potential involvement with others. A 9-month follow-up revealed that similarity of attractiveness was predictive of courtship progress. (Author/RH)
