1. For you to say you are "in a relationship" with someone, your connection must: *This question is required.
Please use the definition of “in a relationship” you gave us when answering the rest of this survey.

We’re going to ask a few questions about your participation in consensual nonmonogamy. For the purposes of this survey, we’re going to be using the term “polyamory” to mean multiple concurrent relationships with separate individuals (using whatever definition you gave us prior), where all the people involved are aware and consenting to the presence of others. “Partners” are the people you have these relationships with. You may define these words differently, and that’s ok! We’ll ask you for your definitions in the survey.

There are some boxes throughout where if you want to explain any of your answers in more depth, you may optionally do so.
3. Do you engage in polyamory according to the above definition? *This question is required.
4. If “no”, have you done so in the past, and would also be open to doing so in the future? *This question is required.
