Notes

Abstract: The authors extend research on dyadic decision making by examining how relationship
partners influence consumer eating patterns. Using research from relationship science and
evolutionary psychology, romantic relationship motives of formation and maintenance are found
to influence eating behaviors. Specifically, females are influenced by the eating patterns (i.e.,
healthiness/unhealthiness) of males when relationship formation motives are active, while males
are influenced by the eating patterns of females when relationship maintenance motives are
active. Furthermore, perceptions of relational influence differ between relationship formation and
maintenance, which underlies these observed effects. This research contributes to the consumer
behavior literature by revealing the powerful influence of relationships on food consumption.
