PhD student at the Chair of Ethnopsychology and Psychological Problems in Multicultural Education, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education

This paper explores the concept of an ideal romantic partner in Moscow students. The aim of the research was to identify the most preferable factors in the image of the ideal partner and to highlight their gender specificity. The study confirmed the hypothesis that the main characteristics and features of the ideal partner can be easily divided into a certain number of factors with an obvious gender-specific significance. The paper presents full results of the study, describes eight main factors and discusses the specifics of preferences in male and female subjects.

Keywords: features of ideal romantic partner, gender differences, attraction, power, patience, orientation towards partner, self-sufficiency, hedonism, discipline

Column: Applied Research and Practice
