    Mod Comment. this survey has been authorised https://www.avforums.com/threads/is-it-appropriate-to-post-a-research-survey.2035830/
    ta :)

    Hey everyone. I'm a psychology doctorate student at the University of Nottingham, UK. I have used online dating sites myself for some time and am very interested in the risks associated with it. I have chosen this topic to research for my thesis, and will also submit it for publication in a peer reviewed journal. In order to complete this I need 1300 participants who have used online dating sites or smartphone apps and met at least one person face to face to answer a few questions about their experiences in my online survey. It's all anonymous and your answers will be used to improve safety for all online daters. The survey takes about 15 minutes (not the 30 min estimate I provided on the info sheet), and more information can be found on the first page at the following link.

    Online Dating Survey

    Thanks for reading!

    Good luck with your doctorate and ongoing research, I've completed the survey and actually it was quite a fulfilling experience thinking back over the last 12 months.

    Done. Good luck with the PhD, and let us know if you get any papers out of this survey.

    After completion, the Thank You/Debrief Form page mentions a button to be clicked ...
    ... there was no further button (survey completed on Chrome on my phone)

    Good luck with the Doctorate.

    Survey completed. It's nearly 15 years since I met my partner via match.com - very much in it's early days, so a lot of the social-media elements didn't apply to us.
