The Men Building Intimate Partner Relationships study aims to create space for men to share their strategies and skills for building and sustaining intimate partner relationships.

We need to talk to men about how they build intimate partner relationships. Intimate partner relationships can promote men’s wellbeing and their partners’ and families’ health. That said, the most common stories we hear are of men’s distressed and/or disrupted partnerships (i.e., separation, divorce).

The Men Building Intimate Partner Relationships study aims to create space for men to share their strategies and skills for building and sustaining intimate partner relationships. These collected insights will help us create messages, and mentor other men to become ready and skilled at sustaining their relationships.

Who can participate in the study?

You can participate in this study if you:

  • Self-identify as a man,
  • Are between 19-44 years old,
  • Have or previously had an intimate partner relationship, and
  • Speak English.

Participants will receive a $100 honorarium.

How can I participate?

Your participation includes a Zoom interview to talk about your perspectives about and experiences of building an intimate partner relationship. To hear more about the study Email Dr. Nina Gao, Project Coordinator at yuchen.gao@ubc.ca.  Nina will arrange a brief Zoom meeting to fully explain the study and answer any questions you might have.
