That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
But it still means that one-third of online daters have not yet met up in real life with someone they initially found on an online dating site.
“As a dude, I’m told that I’m supposed to date girls my own age and take care of them, pay for dinner, and so on.
But for that period of time, the roles were reversed. And it felt great—who doesn’t want to be taken care of?
If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone.
Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
You think the other gender wants exactly what you want. When men email pictures of their genitalia to women thinking “Oh yeah, that’ll turn her on,” that’s gender myopia. By the way…a simple question: Would you rather date a woman with no money who expects you to pay for the entire cost of an expensive date, or a woman who makes decent money who expects the same? And whereas younger women are putting you through the paces to see if you can provide her with a life, an identity, and a future, an older woman already knows who she is and what she wants to do—she’d just love someone to share it with.
