College students' perceptions of love and romance on television were analyzed. Participants included 412 undergraduate students who completed a questionnaire about love on television. Results from this study indicated that men and women had similar perceptions of courtship, kissing, dating, and attraction on television. However, men and women differed in their perceptions of sex, love, and romance on television. Men were more likely than women to believe that sex on television was portrayed realistically, while women were more likely than men to believe that portrayals of love on television were accurate representations of reality.
