Women more often than men mentioned easing the feeling of loneliness as a reason for beginning interpersonal relationships, whereas men more often listed maximising pleasures and minimising dissatisfaction. Both sexes considered personal traits of a life partner as very important. Assessing attractiveness of the partner, men’s attention was attracted by appearance and beauty of women, whereas social and material status of men was more important to women.
