Participants of this study chose their preferred partner based on various descriptions.
Both men and women mostly chose warmth/trustworthiness over status/resources for long or short-term relationships.
Men desired much more attractiveness/vitality for both a fling and long-term relationship than women.
Both genders increased the importance of attractiveness and vitality in short-term relationships. But they also lowered the importance of warmth and trustworthiness.
