Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer Women’s Experiences of Unwanted Interaction on Online Dating Services



You must be 18 years of age or older in order to participate in this research study. 

If you choose to participate by completing this survey, you will be asked about your online dating preferences and habits, any experiences of unwanted interaction and/or harassment you may have experienced while using an online dating service (including examples of specific kinds of behavior, and opportunities to provide more information on your personal experiences), and about how you dealt with these unwanted interactions.

This survey also includes questions about any experiences of unwanted attention or harassment you may have experienced in physical social situations, and about how you dealt with these unwanted interactions.

Your responses to this survey are anonymous. You may cease participation in this survey at any time by closing your browser window. Your responses will not be recorded until you click the ‘submit’ button at the end of the survey. Because your responses are anonymous and not linked to identifying information, you will not be able to retract your participation once you submit your responses. 

This survey usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete.
