Are you in a long term relationship?

Intimate interactions in romantic relationships play an important role in daily-life. This study aims to better understand how responsiveness (to your partner and vice versa) affects the relationship between personality, attachment and sexual self-disclosure in romantic relationships.

In this first phase of the study you will be asked to answer a series of demographic questions about yourself and your partner, and questions about your relationship. At the end of the survey you will be asked to provide your email address and your partner’s email address if interested in participating in the 2nd phase (online surveys on personality, attachment, sexual self-disclosure, partner responsiveness and perceived partner responsiveness).

This study (2017/112) has been approved by the University of Sydney Human Research Ethics Committee.


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older.
  • Are in a relationship of at least six months.
