Have your say

A Leeds student is investigating the idea that sending just one affectionate text message a day to your partner could significantly improve your relationship.

Psychology masters student Anna Batho, from Leeds Metropolitan University, is calling on people to take part in her online survey.

Anna said: “Studies have found that people showing more affection are generally more satisfied with their relationship.

“What we [...] are hoping to discover is just how much positive difference affectionate text messages can make to our relationships.”

The results will be released in September. To take part in the survey, go to http://goo.gl/RvcgO7.
