TALERO-GUTIERREZ, Claudia et al. Sleep quality perception and romantic relationships in university students: cross-sectional study. rev.fac.med. [online]. 2017, vol.65, n.2, pp.197-202. ISSN 0120-0011.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15446/revfacmed.v65n2.58396.

Introduction:

Sleep in adolescence is influenced by emotional states triggered by romantic relationships, which can be determinant in sleep quality perception.

Objective:

This study was designed to assess the association between sleep quality perception and romantic relationships, as well as its characteristics in late adolescent/young adult university students.

Materials and methods:

A cross sectional study was conducted in 443 subjects. Sleep quality perception was quantified using a validated diary for young persons. Individual attachment style, romantic relationship status and its characteristics were determined using specific validated measures.

Results:

Sleep quality perception was determined using five multivariate models that included statistically significant characteristics of romantic relationships. Higher sleep quality perception was associated with the level of satisfaction of a subject with the relationship and liking for the partner (p=0.035). The prevalence of romantic relationships in students was 64% (95%CI: 59.4-68.9). The individuals that were not in a romantic relationship experienced significantly prolonged sleep latency (p<0.05).

Conclusion:

Higher sleep quality perception in university students is associated with being in a romantic relationship and the attachment style. These aspects can be identified and intervened, if support systems of educational institutions recognize their potential importance for health, wellbeing and academic performance.
