We received a call for research participants and are passing it along to you, our community, because we believe in supporting more research about our lives and loves.
Here's their letter:
We are working on a dissertation that examines communication with a committed partner during important transitions in consensually non-monogamous relationships. If you are 1) 18 years or older and 2) currently in a self-defined committed consensually non-monogamous relationship with at least one partner (e.g., including but not limited to a primary partner, nesting partner, life partner) and 3) that partner has started a new sexual or romantic partnership with someone other than yourself in the past six months you are eligible to voluntarily participate. As incentive for your participation in this study, you may choose to be entered in a raffle to win one of eight $100 Amazon gift cards. Please note that the co-investigator is a member of the polyam community and identifies as pansexual.
This anonymous online survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and is conducted by co-investigator R. E. Purtell and principal investigator Dr. Matthew M. Martin from WVU’s Department of Communication Studies in 108 Armstrong Hall, P.O. Box 6293, Morgantown, WV, 26505.
