Abstract: This thesis explores differences in attraction between actual opposite sex friendships and romantic relationships as a function of gender role perception. Past research (Kulik & Harackiewicz, 1979; McCutcheon, 1988; Desrochers, 1995) tested this area extensively using fictional gender role profiles, indicating that males associate 'feminine' with 'beautiful.' Participants completed the Bem Sex Role Inventory (Bem, 1974) 3 times to evaluate the gender roles of themselves, and their current or most recent opposite sex friends, and their romantic partners. It was hypothesized that, in contrast to past research, men will prefer androgynous females romantically and platonically, with women preferring androgynous males both romantically and platonically. Analyses included Wilcoxon Signed Ranks tests and chi-squares. Results indicated no significant difference between men and women's preferences in platonic and romantic gender roles, with the exception of males preferring feminine gender roles more romantically. The results suggest that past research methods should change to accommodate changing gender roles.
