Abstract

This study is an exploration of participants’ romantic relationship status and how it impacts daily functions such as mental health, social status, and academic status. This study also reported on hook-up participation and sexual satisfaction. There was a significant positive correlation found between social status and mental health – participants who had more platonic relationships had significantly better mental health. There was no significant difference found in terms of gender, relationship type, sexuality, or age. These were all compared by mental status, social status, overall relationship quality, sexual satisfaction, and hook-up culture participation. This study has an emphasis on undergraduate students’ lives.
