Do you kiss your partner once a day, once a week, once a month, or less? Do you think you would be more satisfied in your relationship if you kissed more frequently? Less frequently?
How often are other couples having sex?
How often do you lie to your partner? Is honesty really the best way to keep peace in a household?
These are some of the questions youâ€™ll find in the Normal Bar Survey,Â the groundbreaking international study designed to uncover what “normal” is in relationships and dating.
Created by Chrisanna Northrup, CEO of YOU Got Challenged! Inc., Dr. Pepper Schwartz, a professor of sociology at the University of Washington, and Dr. James Witte, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center for Social Science Research at George Mason University, the survey and the forthcoming The Normal BarÂ book (Harmony, February 2013) will help survey participants and readers learn how their “normal” compares to other people around the world.
Survey topics include money, sex, family, happiness, trust, fidelity, children, affection, romance, obsessions, addictions, communication and many more. Every type of relationship is examined.
Now you too can contribute to this growing body of research by taking the Normal Bar Survey. As you go, you’ll be able to see how your relationship behaviors compare to couples around the world. Forward it to your partner, too. Who knows, it might get you kissing more often and add a little sizzle to your love life.
