An observational study of how we date, have sex, and form relationships today

Dr. Tyrel Starks and Pace University is conducting an online study of how people date and form relationships. Participation includes an initial survey questionnaire about your feelings and attitudes towards relationships, your history with dating, current mental, emotional and social well-being, and recent substance use and sexual behavior. Then, you will return to the survey once a week for 6 weeks to update us about what is going on in your dating life. The survey is open to men and women who think of themselves as single.

"People think you’re just this f—king hooker, someone who’s money-hungry, dirty and gross. But that’s not my reality,” said Boomer Banks on a recent March afternoon, looking up from his sewing machine. “It isn’t my be-all, end-all.
