Improvements in dyadic data analysis methods are important for conducting studies that investigate romantic relationship dynamics and hence for developing effective interventions in the field of couple therapy. Despite these improvements in statistical methods, collecting data from dyads inherits some difficulties such as convincing male partners to participate in research. Crowdsourcing companies provide an option to overcome some of these difficulties. The aim of this article is to introduce one of the crowdsourcing companies, namely Prolific, to researchers in Turkey who are working on dyads. In this article, we first mention why we selected Prolific among several crowdsourcing companies. After explaining the reasons, collecting dyadic data via Prolific is explained step by step with screenshots. Additionally, important aspects to consider and check during prescreening, data collection and data cleaning for increasing data quality are also presented. We believe that this article, in which we discussed both advantages and disadvantages of collecting dyadic data via Prolific crowdsourcing company, would serve as a methodological resource for clinicians and researchers who aim to collect dyadic data.
