Survey reveals 2021 online dating trends

CHENNAI: The pandemic has changed the way people date. And now, the dating app QuackQuack has released a 2021 online dating trend survey.
“The pandemic has indeed thrown some curveballs towards people wishing to go out with them. In my opinion, both men and women are quickly embracing a new world of online dating every day and embracing smarter, healthier dating methods, an evolutionary process that will soon become the norm, ”said Ravi Mittal, Founder and CEO from QuackQuack.
Here are some of the main findings of the survey:
~ Vaccination is a must: Eight out of 10 people who were in the survey sample size expressed their opinion in favor of compulsory vaccination as a precursor to a date. And 65% and 75% of people in the 18-20 and 21-30 age groups respectively agreed on the same. The importance of a double jab was uniformly emphasized in major cities as well as Tier 2 cities, as 75% and 70% of the sample size belonging to each believed that the first step towards a safe date should be the complete vaccination of the other. This is because 80% of women and 70% of men felt the need for an inoculation before the dates.
~ Dating for a Purpose: Due to security protocols, people had very little reason to venture outside, causing them to reflect on the nature of the dates they found on the dating app – 47% of women and 35% of men who were in the survey vouched for this behavior change and said it led to healthier relationships than before. While nearly 37% of urban teens found their dating process had taken a deliberate turn, 39% of those in rural or semi-urban areas felt the same.
~ Location: 58% and 56% of people aged 18 to 20 and 21 to 30, respectively, prefer to associate with people from another locality because this would help broaden their search radius for a potential partner. This trend seemed to be more pronounced among women, with 58% of them being partners who were comfortable dating other places, compared to 50% relatively less among men. Further investigation of a demographic analysis of the sampled data found that 46% of people residing in large metropolitan cities preferred dating beyond the boundaries of their place of residence, while a comparatively higher proportion of 57% preferred dating beyond the boundaries of their place of residence. chosen the same in the case of small towns as well as towns. The numbers indicate that a significant number of people don’t find location a major barrier when it comes to dating and are flexible to have partners from a place other than their own.
~ Video call versus face-to-face meeting: 56% of people in the 18 to 20 age group preferred to have their first date virtual and were averse to risk. In contrast, 43% of people aged 30 and over, belonging to a more old-school approach, chose to meet in person, observing all necessary safety precautions.
