Long-term and short-term relationships are obviously different from each other.
But new research out of the University of California, Davis, suggests that — at first — long-term and short-term relationships may look more or less identical. When you survey the complete time course of a short-term and long-term relationship — from the moment you meet someone until the moment the relationship is over for good — it takes a while for the differences in short-term and long-term relationships to emerge.
Eastwick and his co-authors surveyed more than people from a wide range of ages. Importantly, Eastwick and his colleagues asked the participants to reconstruct these relationships from the very beginning.
The researchers found that romantic interest rises at the same rate in both short-term and long-term relationships. But at some point, romantic interest tends to plateau and decline in short-term relationships, while in long-term relationships, it continues to ascend and reaches a higher peak.
What is the moment when the two trajectories start to diverge? On average, it happens at about the time that the relationship starts to become sexual. Those were the short-term ones. The study offers a new twist on the distinction between the stable, long-term partner and the exciting, short-term partner.
