Dominance is a key feature on which romantic partners are evaluated,  yet there is no clear consensus on its definition. In Study 1 (N=305),  the authors developed scales to measure three putatively distinct  dimensions of dominance: social, financial, and physical. In Study 2  (N=308), the authors used their scales in a mate-selection paradigm and  found that women perceived physical dominance to be related to both  attractiveness and social dominance. For both sexes, attractiveness  predicted desirability for a one-night stand, whereas attractiveness and  agreeableness were predictors of desirability for a serious  relationship. In Study 3 (N=124), the authors surveyed romantic partners  in monogamous relationships and found that although aspects of a  partner’s dominance-financial for women and social for men-played a  bivariate role in relationship satisfaction, agreeableness was the  strongest predictor of current and future relationship satisfaction and  the only significant predictor of relationship dissolution.
