The aim of the present research was to study the relationship between early maladaptive schemas and attitude about mate selection as well as to determine the contribution of each schema in creating attitude in college students. This was a descriptive (correlation of prediction) kind of research. Early maladaptive schema domains were as predictor variables and attitude about mate selection domains were as criteria variables. Research sample was in the form of cluster sampling in which 122 students responded to Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ) and Attitude about mate selection questionnaire. In this research, statistical method of correlation and regression analysis with step by step method was utilized. Findings showed that all domains of early maladaptive schemas in students have meaningful positive correlation with attitude about mate selection domains. Finding of regression indicated that entitlement/superiority and abandonment schemas are capable of predicting attitudes about mate selection in college students.
