We examined whether regulatory focus predicts online dating outcomes above and beyond its covariates of extraversion and neuroticism. In a sample of 163 online daters, promotion focus predicted higher perceived online dating success, whereas prevention focus predicted a lower likelihood of going on a date. These associations remained significant when controlling for extraversion and neuroticism.
