This research is being conducted as a part of my Doctor of Psychology (Clinical) degree at Deakin University in Australia.
The purpose of this research project is to investigate “friends-with-benefits” relationships amoung heterosexual young adults, including:
- How people define this relationship
- The perceived rules for engaging in this type of relationship
- The positive and negative aspects of this type of relationship
- What people expect to get out this relationship
There will be two phases to this research project:
Telephone interviews with 30 people living in Australia aged between 18-35 years old.
An online survey for people living all over the world aged 18-35 years old.
