Reproductive strategies and relationship preferences associated with prestigious and dominant men

Publication Abstract

Kruger, Daniel J., and Carey J. Fitzgerald. 2011. "Reproductive strategies and relationship preferences associated with prestigious and dominant men." Personality and Individual Differences, 50(3): 365-369.

Women prefer dominant men as short-term mates and prestigious men as long-term mates. People associate short-term mating with masculine male facial features and long-term mating with feminine male facial features. The present study found that people associate dominant men with masculine facial features and short-term mating strategies, and prestigious men with feminine facial features and long-term mating strategies. Both men and women prefer high-prestige men for social relationships. Women prefer high-prestige men for long-term romantic relationships, yet prefer high-dominance men for brief sexual affairs. Although men were generally accurate in predicting women's partner preferences, men overestimated the degree to which women would find the high-dominance man more attractive for all types of relationships.
