vignettes about a hypothetical couple. Rose and Frieze (1993) noted the strong occurrence of gender typing in first-date scenarios. The researchers predicted that participants would rate targets in gender stereotypic dates as more appropriate, warm, and competent than those in gender counter-stereotypic dates. Source: Courtesy of Snapwire, in a previous post, I discussed research that I had conducted on first dates, which highlighted differences when it comes to perceptions of how successful a date was. Conclusion, the research presented here demonstrates that when it comes to dating in heterosexual, we still rely on scripts that largely differ for males and females.
