Item Summary

Title:Attachment styles as a predictor of fatal attractions
Authors:Rodgers, Jeff
Keywords:Interpersonal attraction
Attachment behavior
Date Issued:2004
Abstract:Research regarding fatal attractions has indicated several areas, themes, processes as well as the likeliness of certain attractions leading to fatal attractions. However, research has not ascertained whether certain individuals have an increased probability of engaging in fatal attractions. Fatal attractions may in large be due to individuals' attachment style to their romantic partner. This research proposed that individuals who are categorized as possessing an anxious/ambivalent attachment style would make up a disproportionate percentage of fatal attractions. Based on a sample of 197 college students, our findings indicate no association between attachment styles and fatal attractions. A discussion of the lack of support for the hypothesis is presented along with limitations and suggestions for future research.
