We investigated the moderating influence of individual differences in women’s sociosexuality on romantic preferences within three specific relationship contexts. Female participants were presented with four prospective mates, varying in their ambition and attractiveness, and were asked to rate interest in these targets as short-term sexual partners, as casual dating partners, and as long-term romantic partners. Short-term sexual appeal largely rested on targets’ attractiveness, particularly among women with an unrestricted sociosexual orientation. Dating appeal was dependent on attractiveness, particularly among unrestricted women, and on ambition. Ambition and attractiveness synergistically influenced targets’ long-term desirability, and these preferences were not moderated by women’s sociosexual orientation. These findings portray the textured manner in which sociosexual orientation shapes women’s mate preferences and underscore the need to delineate different types of short-term relationships. We advance an interactionist framework that considers how women’s dispositions and the traits of potential mates jointly operate to influence romantic preferences within distinct contexts.
Although Sigmund Freud alleged to comprehend the unconscious desires of his patients, his letter to Marie Bonaparte confesses confusion in a more material realm: the romantic desires of women. The present research adopts an interactionist framework to shed light on Freud’s question – exploring how women’s mate preferences within various contexts are jointly influenced by their predispositions and the traits of prospective suitors. We assess the moderating effect of sociosexuality – a dispositional proclivity for long-term romantic commitment versus short-term sexual liaisons – on preferences for male traits within different relationship contexts. That is, we ask, does sociosexuality moderate partner preferences in some romantic contexts but not in others? In addition, we move beyond the typical long-term versus short-term dichotomy by examining women’s preferences in an intermediate and exceedingly common context: casual dating. Casual dating, which we define as an informal process involving two parties assessing the feasibility of sustained romantic interest, warrants increased attention. This context allows women to assess long-term romantic potential, but as it does not imply formal commitment, sexual involvement carries great risk.

The present research reveals that the answer to Freud’s question “what does a woman want?” is not a simple one. A comprehensive account of women’s romantic desires must consider their individual predispositions (e.g., sociosexuality) and the independent and interactive traits of prospective suitors, and how these variables operate in concert to stimulate women’s desires within distinct relationship contexts. The question “what do women want?” is more aptly phrased, “what does which woman want and when?”
