Men: best friends and romantic partners

University of Oxford

Their description: For MEN ONLY. The purpose of this study is to explore the nature of the relationships men have with their romantic partner and best friend. Where individuals have both a partner and a best friend we are interested in the complexities of these relationships and how they may compliment each other. Where individuals do not have a partner we are interested in the complexities of their relationship with their best friend. The questionnaire asks you questions about your partner’s, if you have one, and best friend’s characters and the nature of your relationship with them; its onset and maintenance, emotional, functional and practical aspects. When identifying your best friend you should refer to the non-related person you would turn to first, after your romantic partner, during a time of extreme difficulty or emotional distress. Takes about 30 minutes to complete.
