Adventures in Dating: Memoirs of a Single Mom is a column in which featured SofR contributor Dr. Jennifer Harman shares her personal adventures dating “in the wild” as a single, professional mother. Part commentary, part scientific analysis, Jennifer will add a unique perspective to the challenges of dating as a non-twenty-something woman while juggling career, family, and life.
Jennifer's primary research interests examine relationship behaviors that put people at risk for physical and psychological health problems. Specifically, she has been examining how feelings and beliefs about risk (e.g., sexual risk taking, communication problems) can be biased when in an intimate relationship. Recently, she also has been examining the role of power on commitment to intimate relationships.
