Choosing a partner is not that easy, there are lots of thing to be considered base on our attitudes and principles, as well as the things that we see, hear, feel, experience, etc. And since the organization wanted to find out U.P Diliman student’s perception of love, the level of their preferences in choosing a partner was considered and based on the survey results;
Respondents found good moral character (2.92), good pleasing personality (2.88) and intelligence (2.84) as most important in choosing a partner. They also found that gender (2.81) and the making of a good spouse (2.77) were important. On the other hand study shows that they neither find nationality (2.15), being in U.P (2.05), and skin color (1.99) as important and they do not consider political views (1.98) and race (1.97) as important in choosing a partner.
The findings suggest that UP students prefer someone of good moral character and personality and they do not see race and skin color as important in choosing a partner. Also, the fact that U.P is a non-catholic democratic school clearly shows that the U.P Diliman students respect each other’s belief and principle regarding different issues especially when it comes to political. Thus, students don’t give much attention on these matters when it comes to partner preference. On the other hand, it’s not surprising why U.P student’s, which is known for being intellectual and accountable, considers intelligence as one of the most important thing in choosing a partner. On the contrary to these, while intelligence is being considered as important, based on the results, (see table 3) “taga-U.P,” is not given much attention in choosing their preferences which shows that U.P students Is not biased when it comes to their partner preference.
