Dating in 2018 is more of a challenge than ever before, thanks in part to today's polarizing political landscape.
While 66% are turned off if you text someone during a date; 58% don't want you to place your phone on the table face up; 57% are upset if you read the occasional text during a date; and 41% regard it as rude if you take your phone with you to the bathroom or outside. And i Phone owners are 21x more likely to judge you negatively for having an Android.
Next comes their grammar (39%), their teeth/smile (37%), and their outfit (35%). 57% of singles say social media has generated a Fear Of Missing Out.
51% say social media has made them feel more self-conscious about their appearance; and 48% say it has made them regret that they did or didn't do something. Think that giving someone your i Phone password is a sign of budding love? Both men and women agree that more traditional moments signal signs of falling in love including: caring for them when they are sick (87%); attending a family event as a couple (83%); mentioning them to your friends (82%); vacationing together (79%); and mentioning them to your parents (76%). Most singles don't have a clear understanding of this burgeoning social movement.
The appeal of the go-getter: The number one modern turn on for single men this year? Entrepreneurs tend to be creative, industrious, self-confident and daring.
It's another step in the emerging global trend toward the double income family, successful business women and men who respect and admire women for their business acumen.
