Recent studies on dating

Two factors caused this pattern: a response bias, in which one presses the same key as last time, and a perceptual effect mostly likely caused by the short interval allowed for processing the faces.

Teens are particularly susceptible to peer pressure and influence-even when violence is involved.

Research has demonstrated that adolescents with friends involved in drug use, delinquency, stealing, and skipping school are more likely to be physically violent with their romantic partners than other adolescents. Common sense, and many past studies have shown that men are normally the perpetrators of dating violence and that women are primarily the victims.

But a growing field of research suggests that what happens in teen relationships shapes future adult relationships.

Unfortunately, teen relationships can be violent; one study shows that 16-24 year olds are most likely to be the victims of dating violence.

But new research suggests that we may not be giving prospects a fair chance when we switch or swipe from one profile to another on dating apps and Web sites.

In a study described in March in Scientific Reports, female subjects saw men's faces on a screen for 300 milliseconds—about the length of a very short view on a dating app such as Tinder. The researchers found that faces were more likely to be judged attractive when they followed other attractive faces.

Long-term data with high-precision chronology are essential to elucidate past ecological changes on coral reefs beyond the period of modern-day monitoring programs.

In 2012 we revisited two inshore reefs within the central Great Barrier Reef, where a series of historical photographs document a loss of hard coral cover between c.1890–1994 AD.

Because adolescence is a time of exploration and development, the teen years are an important window for learning about healthy dating and relationships.

The reality is that many teens are learning to abuse and be abused by their dates: between 20-46% of youths have been abused by their relationship partner.

Unfortunately, adolescents often remain in violent relationships; one researcher found that 44% of youths remained in relationships after experiencing moderate violence, which is defined as scratches, slaps, and hair pulls.
