When a woman is ‘unstable’ she’s likely to be lonely, say researchers
A new study by psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania and the University in Oslo suggests that when a woman becomes unstable, she is less likely to seek out a mate and more likely to live alone.
The study, published in the American Journal of Social Psychology, examined the relationship between a woman’s emotional state and her level of relationship satisfaction and well-being.
It found that when she is emotionally stable, she has higher levels of well-ness and self-esteem than when she becomes unstable.
“It’s a real finding,” said the study’s lead author, Alexandra Stoyanova, an assistant professor in the psychology department at Penn.
“Women are more likely when they’re stable to be able to maintain a sense of belonging, which means that they have the emotional support of their partner.”
Stoyanas study also found that the women who were stable in their early twenties were less likely than women who became unstable to have a stable partner.
“The findings suggest that women with higher emotional stability are more open to the possibility of a relationship, which is something women who are socially anxious and less connected to family may find difficult to achieve,” Stoyanyanas said.
Stoyancas study is among the first to look at the impact of emotional instability on romantic partners.
Previous studies have found that women who suffer from mental health disorders are more unlikely to find a romantic partner than women with no mental health problems.
In a 2013 study of 4,000 college students, Stoyannas and her colleagues found that men who were depressed were more likely than men with no depressive symptoms to be in a long-term relationship, and women who had depression were more than twice as likely to have found a romantic relationship.
In her study, Stowannas found that, when women are emotionally stable in early twenties, they have lower levels of distress and higher levels, on average, of wellness and positive self-efficacy.
“That means they’re more able to deal with stress and their stressors in a way that they can cope,” Stowanyanases co-author and psychology professor Elizabeth Gavigan said in a statement.
“And the fact that they are more able in their own lives to make decisions about their own happiness, and to make those decisions without the help of a romantic or romantic-like relationship, is really important.”
In the new study, researchers looked at data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) and the American Community Survey.
The researchers used data from a sample of 3,973 college students from 2004 to 2012 who completed a self-report survey.
The survey asked participants questions about their mental health status, the number of romantic partners they had and their life satisfaction.
In the NLSY, respondents also reported their emotional state, such as whether they were stable or unstable.
The NLSy included questions on whether they had a romantic interest, if they had been in a romantic-type relationship and if they were in a relationship with someone they did not know.
The American Community Surveys also asked participants whether they lived with a partner, whether they shared an apartment or a house with others and how happy they were with their lives.
The women in the study were then asked questions about emotional stability, as well as their level of well being.
“We found that among women who reported being in stable, stable or stable-but-unstable relationships, there was no relationship satisfaction difference between those women and those who were in unstable or unstable relationships,” Stoyaanas told ABC News.
“In contrast, among women with stable, unstable or unstable-but-“unstable-relationship, there were differences.
In unstable relationships and in stable relationships, women were less satisfied with their relationship.
“Stoyaans team also looked at the relationships they had with their romantic partners and how well they were able to manage their emotions.
In one of the study results, the researchers found that people with low levels of self-confidence and low levels and self esteem tended to have higher levels and more time spent with an emotional partner than those with high levels of confidence and higher self esteem. “
A woman who is not emotionally stable is less able to engage in romantic relationships and to manage her emotions, and this is a significant problem for them,” Stoyleas said in the statement.
In one of the study results, the researchers found that people with low levels of self-confidence and low levels and self esteem tended to have higher levels and more time spent with an emotional partner than those with high levels of confidence and higher self esteem.
Stoyaas study has some limitations.
It is not a random sample.
Stowanas team only included women who identified as being of “female” ethnicity.
In addition, the data used to construct the study, which took place between 2009 and 2013, was not random.
The research was conducted with data from 2,095 college students and 1,632 non-students.
“There are limitations in how this data is collected, and we don’t know whether that is something that is a result of the sample being
