Abstract

This study is important because it investigates how the romantic relationships of others, good or bad, can affect how people feel about their own romantic relationships. We are measuring how people’s feelings about their own relationships change after watching a video with a heartwarming romance or an abusive relationship. We will be administering the Passionate Love Scale (PLS) before and after the videos are viewed. Our prediction is that after watching the heartwarming video, participants will have a higher score on the PLS than before the video because we believe that once they see a happy relationship video, it will make them think of their loved one with more affection. For the abusive video, however, we predict a change to the PLS in either direction, depending on how much the viewer identifies with the victim. Preliminary results will be presented.
