Gazioglu, A. Esra Ismen
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p603-616 Jun 2008
The subject of this study is gender and gender roles affecting mate preferences. The sample of the study consists of 300 undergraduates and master students. To identify students' gender roles the Sex Role Evaluation Inventory (Bem, 1974) is used. The Question List (Bacanli 2001; Buss et. al., 1990) is applied to the sample group to determine the degree of importance of characteristics used in mate preferences. According to the results of the study, mate preferences are significantly differenciated in terms of gender; whereas there is no such significant difference in terms of gender roles.
