You are invited to participate in an anonymous questionnaire designed to examine, among other variables, personality, motivations, and behaviours associated with online dating. The purpose of this study is to understand how these factors predict online dating behaviours. You are advised that participation is entirely voluntary, and you may withdraw your participation at any time without penalty. You are reminded they are not obliged to answer questions if they make you feel uncomfortable.
Please take the time to complete the following questionnaire, which will take roughly 30 minutes of your time. Please note that you must be over 18 years of age to participate in the current research. The survey will ask you to provide some brief demographic information. Then the questionnaire will ask you about your personality, perceptions of self, and online behaviours.
Your participation in this project is voluntary and your answers are anonymous. You are free to refuse consent or withdraw participation at any time without explanation. Please note however, that each time you click the ‘next’ button throughout the questionnaire, your answers are immediately submitted and become amalgamated with the data. Therefore, should you decide to withdraw your participation throughout the questionnaire, there will be no way to retrieve your already submitted individual answers.
Please note that first year psychology students at Federation University may have the opportunity to attain course credit upon completion of this questionnaire. Please ensure that you confirm this eligibility, which will be documented in your Course Description.
