"To develop and to validate a new romanticism scale, and to identify patterns of association among romanticism, gender and gender-role orientation." "Love as the ideology of romanticism has recently been distinguished from other approaches to love, particularly love as the subjective feelings associated with a particular partner or ongoing relationship." There are four factors: "Love Finds a Way, One and Only, Idealization, and Love at First Sight." "Findings are discussed as a function of both social structure and personal predispositions."
