"Getting To Know You" Project


Are You Seeing Someone New?

Researchers at Western University are looking for participants for a large-scale study on new couples and their dating experiences. We hope to learn about people’s dating experiences in the early stages of a relationship.

To Be Eligible:
  1. You must currently be seeing someone new. Specifically, we are looking for people who went on their first date less than 12 months ago. People who are seeing someone very casually are still eligible for the study.

  2. Both you and your partner must participate, and must be fluent in English.

  3. Both you and your partner must have access to separate electronic devices (i.e., laptop) with a camera and microphone.

  4. You must currently live in either Canada or the United States.

What The Study Entails:

This study consists of an online virtual activity where you and your partner will meet with a research assistant online over Zoom. You will both complete a few questionnaires and engage in a task where you will uncover new information about each other. The study will take approximately 30-40 minutes.


You and your partner will each be compensated with a $10 Amazon gift card ($20 per couple).
