To American Lonely Hearts, Love Has Become a Material Thing

The Independent - London

Douglas Raybeck and Stephanie Dorenbosch, anthropologists at Hamilton College, New York, worked with two psychologists, Michael Sarapata and Douglas Herrmann from Indiana State University, on the study. Their paper, SWF ISO LTR: The quest for love and meaning in the personals, was presented at the 98th annual meeting of the American Anthropology Society in Chicago last week. The study showed that people are increasingly rejecting the notion of falling in love on a whim, without consideration of intellectual or social abilities... Professor Raybeck said: "There are specialist dating agencies that advertise only in academic sources and personal columns for scientists, social workers and others, as well as ones tailored to very specific cultural and social niches."
