PALUMBO, Mariana. Motivations and expectations during the searches of erotic and/or affective relationships. Cultura representaciones soc [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.25, pp.184-213. ISSN 2007-8110.

In a context in which people have changing and heterogeneous emotional careers, this article describes and analyzes, from a qualitative methodology, which are the expectations and motivations that cis heterosexual adult single women and men that live in Buenos Aires City, Argentina, have when they search for erotic and/or affective encounters. This articles analyzes those romantic motivations and expectations and the ones that come from the desire of being mothers and fathers. In all cases, I study how the environment -family, friends, therapist- contributes in the searches.

Keywords : romantic love; bachelorhood; maternity and paternity; enviornment.
