Jealousy during Dating among Female College Students
Khanchandani, Laveena; Durham, Thomas W.
College Student Journal, v43 n4 p1272-1278 Dec 2009
This study examined the relationship between several situational and personality variables and jealousy in dating relationships among 100 college women volunteers who completed a series of questionnaires about themselves and their dating situations. Six research questions were examined. Results showed that jealousy was lower for women in a steady dating relationship than for women not in a steady relationship. Women who were more satisfied with their dating partner reported lower levels of jealousy than women who reported less satisfaction with their dating relationship. Women scoring higher in self-esteem and lower in neuroticism reported less jealousy than women who were lower in self-esteem and higher in neuroticism. No clear relationship was found between jealousy and the exclusivity of the dating relationship or commitment to the partner. (Contains 1 table.)
