理想伴侣中美大学生依恋风格性别角色自尊婚恋态度Ideal Partner; Sino-American College Student; Attachment Style; Gender Role; Self-Esteem; Marital Attitude



The ideal partner has long been a focus in the field of marital Psychology. However, reviewing the previous works, we found that researches were lack in the domains of sex role, attachment style, self-esteem and marital attitudes. So this research focused on these varibles and tested the relative preference of ideal partner. Also, gender difference and culture difference were compared. Questionnaire surveys were underway in both ChinaandAmerica. Results showed that both Chinese and American students expressed high expections on their ideal partners, and preferred ideal partners similar to themselves; female students had stricter standards of choosing mates than the male.
