The present study is a replication and an extension of Dussault, Hojjat, and Boone (2013). Machiavellianism and dating: Deception and intimacy. Social Behavior and Personality: an international journal, 41(2), 283-294. The results support the positive association between Machiavellianism and the use of deceptive dating strategies, but fail to detect a correlation between Machiavellianism and perceived intimacy. The extension to the Dark Triad reveals that psychopathy is a stronger predictor than Machiavellianism to assess deceptive dating strategies, and supports a relationship between higher degrees of narcissism and history of intimate behaviors.
