Hi Jamie

I'd be really interested in running this again if you can? It's 10 years old now, so maybe a good time for an update.

I would strongly back up the suggestion to also include step-family ie.


I think they will feature for a lot of people.

Anyway, hoping you might manage it! Thanks,

Perhaps “online acquaintance” as well as those which ashridge_mack suggests?

Good idea but unfortunately the forum software only allows 15 options in a poll.

Our slightly more scientific survey can be found here: https://www.havoca.org/havoca-survey/

It has a few more options.

Father, mom, adult family friends and strangers. I wasn't someone to them.
