Adolescents' Age Preferences for Dating Partners: Support for an Evolutionary Model of Life-History Strategies.
Kenrick, Douglas T.; And Others
Child Development, v67 n4 p1499-1511 Aug 1996
Explored sex differences in adolescent preference for older versus younger mates. Found that teenage males were willing to date females of a wide age range, whereas teenage females prefer dating males from their own age to several years older. Data suggested viewing development of sex differences in dating partner preference from the perspective of an evolutionary life-history model. (MOK)
