The questions we asked related to using one or more dating sites, traveling to meet someone internationally whom they have contacted online, and the preferred way of communication.
- A person had to be logged into their online dating profile on EM.
- An individual could only answer the survey once.
- Polls contained single choice questions.
- Each survey ran for several hours (less than 1 day).
