Hypotheses: Attachment and Intimacy From  the  foregoing  review  it  is  clear  that  secure  individuals are likely to have greater motivation for intimacy in relationships, disclosures, ways,  to  have  greater  responsivity  to interpret others’  to  others’  self—  intimacy behaviors in positive  and be less likely to express inappropriate negative affect  than are those who are insecurely attached.  All of these factors  lead to the hypothesis that individuals who are securely attached will,  on  average,  score  insecure respondents,  higher  on  intimacy  measures  will  than  on average.

If you are currently in a romantic relationship of at least three months duration you are eligible to participate in this study. The questionnaire that follows asks you to provide some information about your feelings about being in relationships with close others. The questionnaire should take about 5 minutes to complete. On the basis of this questionnaire, we will select some people to participate in a larger study of close relationships, involving a two-hour questionnaire. Therefore, we ask that you provide your first name and last initial, your sex, and a telephone number where you may be contacted for possible further participation in this study. This study is being undertaken as part of the requirements for Sandra Parker’s Ph.D. thesis. Everything that you write will be kept completely confidential. Individuals eligible for participation in the next part of the study will be contacted within three months of submitting their questionnaires. The responses of those individuals who are not contacted within three months will be destroyed. You may refuse to participate or withdraw from this study at any time without jeopardizing your class standing. If you complete the questionnaire it will be assumed that your consent to participate in this study has been given. Thank you for your time and participation. The benefits which you may gain from taking part in this study include an increased awareness of your views and experience of relationships with others. If you have any questions or would like further information, you are welcome to contact the investigators at the numbers given below.

Think not just how you usually feel in your romantic your family relationships, but how you feel in that you consider to be close.  Below are descriptions of four general relationship styles that people often report. Please read the four following descriptions (A, B, C, and D) and CIRCLE the one letter corresponding to the style that best describes you or is closest to the way you generally are in your close relationships. A.  It is easy for me to become emotionally close to others. I am comfortable depending on them and having them depend on me. I don’t worry about being alone or having others not accept me.  B.  I am uncomfortable getting close to others. I want emotionally close relationships but I find it difficult to trust others completely, or to depend on them. I worry that I will be hurt if I allow myself to become too close to others.  C.  I want to be completely emotionally intimate with others, but I often find that others are reluctant to get as close as I would like. I am uncomfortable being without close relationships, but I sometimes worry that others don’t value me as much as I value them.  D.  I am comfortable without close emotional relationships. It is very important to me to feel independent and self-sufficient, and I prefer not to depend on others or have others depend on me.  Referring to the four descriptions on the previous page, please use the scales below to rate h of the relationship styles (A, B, C, & D) according to the extent to which you think each description corresponds to your usual relationship style across all of your close relationships.  Not at all like me  Very much like me  Somewhat like me  StyleA  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  StyleB  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  StyleC  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  StyleD  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  48  Please tell us a little about your current romantic relationship: 1. How long have you been in this relationship? (in months) 2. Do you and others consider you and your partner to be a “couple”? Yes 3. Do you live with your romantic partner? Yes  No  No  4. Is this your only current romantic relationship? Yes  No  5. Is your romantic partner male or female?

Among your closest friends, what number are men?

Thank you for your participation.  2t  I  CONCEPTIONS OF SELF AND RELATIONSHIPS  I  The purpose of this study is to examine how people understand and experience their current relationships with others. We are interested in your current romantic relationship, closest same-sex friendship, and closest opposite-sex friendship (other than your romantic partner). It is very important that you complete this questionnaire on your own, without consulting with others. Your unique point of view is very valuable to us, since you are the expert on your experience. Even though you might want to talk about some of the items in the questionnaire, please wait until after you have completed it on your own before discussing it with others. Please set aside enough privacy and time to reflect carefully on your close relationships, and tell us what it feels like for you to be in those relationships. The questionnaire that follows asks you to provide some information about yourself and about each of the three relationships. For each relationship, you are asked to complete a set of questions about what you generally feel and do when you are with each of those persons. The questionnaire should take about 2 hours to complete. This study is being undertaken as part of the requirements for Sandra Parker’s Ph.D. thesis. All answers that you provide will be kept completely confidential. Please do not write your name or student identification on this questionnaire. We will create an anonymous identification number for each respondent. You may refuse to participate or withdraw from this study at any time without jeopardizing your class standing. If you complete the questionnaire it will be assumed that your consent to participate in this study has been given. Thank you for your time and participation. The benefits you may gain from taking part in this study include an opportunity to reflect on and share your experience of being in relationships, and an increased awareness of your views of relationships with others. If you have any questions or would like further information, you are welcome to contact the investigators at the numbers given below. In addition, we invite you to contact the investigators for information about the results and findings of this study, which will be available to you approximately one year from now.
