A doctoral student is recruiting 125 couples to participate in a study exploring romantic relationships.

Jennifer Farrell wants to help people have better relationships. The Study of Adult Romantic Relationships is open to couples who are at least 18 years old, unmarried and have been dating for at least six months.

Participants must complete three parts of the study. In the first portion, couples will meet with Farrell and her team for a two-hour session at Terrill Hall on campus. The following two segments will be 15-minute online questionnaires. Participants will receive a $40 Amazon gift card as appreciation for their time, Farrell said.

“So far, we’ve had a really good retention rate,” Farrell said. “People are continuing to do the surveys and we tried to make the follow-ups shorter, so people are more likely to do them.”

Farrell will look at many qualities of relationships, including personality traits and characteristics.

“Sometimes it’s just finding the right person for you,” Farrell said. “As we learn more about what helps people be more satisfied in their relationships, we can spread that information.”

Farrell said she wants to create a relationship education program for UNT students, but doesn’t have concrete plans for outreach yet. Farrell hopes to finish recruiting couples by the end of the academic year and publish the study by spring 2017.

To participate in the study, contact Farrell at 937-765-0654 or by email.
