I have been asked to participate in a research study that investigates how post-graduate relationships are developed, established and maintained. This study is important because there is little research regarding relationship development after college. Results from this study may aid in understanding how the dating world outside of college is evolving. This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The results from this study will be used to write a paper that will fulfill a course requirement, as well as possible presentations at a professional meeting and/or publication.
