Attitude profiles on love and intimacy ideals in the Canadian population

Canadians have different ideas and values regarding intimate relationships. What are their leading ideals? More than 3000 participants aged 18+ in 2022 have participated in the Mapping Contemporary Love and Intimacy Ideals in Canada (MACLIC) project, based at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and co-directed by Professor Chiara Piazzesi and Professor Martin Blais, Faculty of Human Sciences. The researchers established five attitude profiles regarding values, expectations and ideals in matters of intimacy and love.
