Downloaded By: [Indiana University Libraries] At: 21:06 11 April 2007 Women’s Perceptions of Flirtatious Nonverbal Behavior: The Effects of Alcohol Consumption and Physical Attractiveness Pamela J. Lannutti & Melissa O. Camero Alcohol consumption’s influence on perceptions of social behavior increases the chances of misunderstandings and negative consequences in sexual and flirtatious interactions, but previous alcohol studies have not specifically focused on women’s perceptions of men’s flirtatious nonverbal behavior. Using a field-administered questionnaire, this study examined drinking (N ¼ 120) and nondrinking (N ¼ 134) women’s perceptions of three types of immediate contact enacted by an attractive or unattractive flirtatious man. Results were consistent with alcohol’s social lubrication effect in that drinking women expected a higher degree of immediacy than did nondrinking women. Consistent with nonverbal expectancy violations theory, perceptions of men who engaged in unexpected behavior were influenced by the man’s physical attractiveness and violation immediacy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
