“According to a poll by SurveyMonkey, fully half (50%) of online daters between the ages of 18 to 34 describe their experience as ‘entertaining’ while those ages 35 to 64 disproportionately describe them as ‘disappointing’ (37%).”
Plenty of Fish (POF), a dating app for conversations, today released Conversation Nation 2018. The study, which surveyed 2,000 U.S. singles over 18 years of age, revealed conversation as the benchmark for chemistry and compatibility. Seventy-four percent of singles say conversation is the #1 indicator of chemistry, even over physical attraction.
“In online dating, it’s all about likes, swipes, and sending the first message,” according to OKCupid. “Traditionally, men take the initiative. On OkCupid however, women and men exhibit similar behavior when it comes to liking, browsing and having conversations. The playing field is also pretty even: there are 1.5 men for every woman on the site. These women are progressive too, with 43 percent of women preferring to split the check (compared to 17 percent of men).”
