Dating Habits and Customs Vary Greatly Throughout World

medium_4548348192It stands to reason that dating customs can be very different from one culture to the next. Unfortunately, dating sites have learned the hard way that what works in one country will not necessarily work in the next. More information here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/02/14/why-online-dating-is-struggling-to-go-global.html

Each culture seems to have their own unique idiosyncrasies; arranged marriages aren’t popular at all in the U.S., but are in India, and most Westerners think it’s acceptable to date a stranger they’ve met socializing (many Chinese women disagree).

Though customs vary throughout the world, romantic love is the same everywhere, as is the challenge to find acceptable compatibility.

Dating Site Matching Methodology is Irrelevant and Love Life Timing Matters

medium_2834306912 Many dating sites claim that their matching methods give you an edge in matching you with the right person. However, recent studies suggest otherwise. More information here: http://techcrunch.com/2013/02/14/scientists-argue-that-dating-websites-are-snake-oil-i-prove-them-right/

Skeptics of dating sites claim dating is just a numbers game and the dating site methodology is not important.

A key problem with on-line dating, making dating site methodologies irrelevant, is that people are subjective, or downright dishonest, when they complete their on-line dating profiles.

We believe there’s another, esoteric element to consider regarding success on dating sites.

We’ve said for years that personal love life timing matters. A person who has challenging love life timing can be among thousands of potential dates and still won’t connect with anyone for an enduring, rewarding relationship. It’s just the way love life timing goes–sometimes your collective long-term love life timing is great, and other times it’s not at all.

Hang in there if you’re single and wanting to be in a relationship because your collective timing, as measured through comprehensive astrology and numerology, will eventually shift to your advantage.

47% of Singles Have Had a “Friends With Benefits” Relationship

medium_5920667869 According to a Match.com on-line survey of over 5000 single adults (age 21 and older), 47% of singles said they have had a “friends with benefits” relationship.

Although the survey doesn’t list a typical age range for this sort of connection, it’s probably a much more likely scenario for those under age 40.

The survey results also included these findings: 42% would not date a virgin, and 65% would not date someone with credit card debt more than $5000.

Rent-A-Boyfriend Services Gaining Popularity in China

medium_6854393515 Rent-a-boyfriend services in China are gaining in popularity due to young Chinese women being under pressure to show family and friends they aren’t “leftover women” (a single Chinese woman, over the age of 27 or so).

About $50 includes hugs and hand holding for a day, to match the public perception of romantic involvement, though meeting with the young woman’s family and otherwise going the extra mile costs more.

More information here: http://www.mstarz.com/articles/8284/20130208/china-rent-a-boyfriend-taobao-fake-boyfriend-dating-sites-new-hot-stress-free-trend-single-ladies-during-chinese-lunar-new-year.htm

Perhaps a website catering to Chinese young women and men who both want a “for appearances only” relationship would be successful due to the pressure to be married by age 30 in China.

On-line Dating Doesn’t Undermine Commitment

small_2573762303 On-line dating increases your pool of available dates, yet some people believe (http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/01/a-million-first-dates/309195/) it undermines commitment.

That’s sort of like saying placing multiple plates of various desserts in front of a healthy person undermines their health, or that placing a bucket of water from the deep end of a pool in the shallow end undermines the volume of the water in the pool.

On-line dating shows that many people are merely acting on their natural urges: they aren’t naturally monogamous. Sure, strict, life-long monogamy can work for some people, but many would rather date more than one person (as evidenced by the 50% cheating rate) than be stuck in a dead-end relationship. While many people enter committed, monogamous relationships, there seems to be a growing awareness that it’s simply very rare for both partners to enjoy a rewarding, life-long monogamous connection.

Credit Scores Becoming More Important to Singles Who Are Dating

small_299031183

Credit scores of potential relationship partners are becoming more important to singles. Sites like Creditscoredating.com and Datemycreditscore.com are attracting singles who want a partner who has a good credit score. More information here: https://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/26/business/even-cupid-wants-to-know-your-credit-score.html?_r=1&

It makes sense that people are concerned about credit scores. After all, marriage is a legally binding agreement and you take on your partner’s financial issues once you tie the knot. Your financing for a house, car, or other loan could be rejected, or you’ll pay a much higher interest rate with poor credit.

Do You Stalk Potential Dates Before Meeting?

Photo-Binoculars-small_3119891607According to a new survey, two thirds of people stalk potential dates on social media before meeting. Three quarters cancel the date if they find something they don’t like, such unflattering pictures, lack of humor, too much flirting, and over sharing.

See the full article here: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/news/world/539946/two-thirds-of-people-facebook-stalk-before-a-potential-date.html.

Percentage of Married Women Who Admit to Cheating on the Rise

According to a study at the Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, and the University of Guelph, the percentage of married women admitting to an affair has risen from 12% to about 19% since 1990. More information here: http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/11/16/the-new-adultery-why-stepping-out-is-no-longer-just-a-mans-game/

It’s important to realize that the study included women who admitted to cheating. Considering the women who cheat and don’t admit to it, the overall percentage of married women cheating might be equal to the estimated percentage of married men who have cheated–about 50%.

Many Men Receptive to Dating Sociopaths

An experiment on the dating website OkCupid offers evidence that men don’t mind dating a sociopath, as long as she is attractive. More information here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-57551488-71/okcupid-experiment-proves-men-dont-mind-dating-sociopaths/

It’s not clear how long these men would tolerate being with a sociopath, or if they are only interested in a brief affair. It also seems that women are much less interested in dating a man who is a sociopath, but many infamous male prison inmates receive plenty of fan mail from women. No word on whether or not a large percentage of gays (men or women) are receptive to dating a sociopath.

Nashville Has Highest Percentage of Good Girls

According to a survey of 10,000 American members by SeekingArrangement.com, Nashville, TN and Columbus, OH lead the pack with the highest percentage of “good girls” who have sex with one person or less each year. The results are as follows:

1. Nashville, TN (72%) 2. Columbus, OH (69%) 3. St. Louis, MO (68%) 4. Milwaukee, WI (66%) 5. Denver, CO (65%) 6. Norfolk, VA (63%) 7. Tampa, FL (62.5%) 8. Louisville, KY (61%) 9. Tacoma, WA (60%) 10. Charlotte, NC (59%).

Miami, FL and San Diego, CA lead the pack with the highest percentage of females who have sex with five or more people each year. The results are as follows:

1. Miami, FL (74%) 2. San Diego, CA (71%) 3. Chicago, IL (70%) 4. Detroit, MI (69%) 5. Seattle, WA (68%).

More information about the survey here: http://www.equities.com/news/news-headline-story?dt=2012-10-19&val=614596&d=1&cat=headline

One question immediately comes to mind: Was the survey completed honestly? Since it’s common for people to grossly under-report the number of sexual partners they have had, it’s probably a more accurate representation to double or triple (two or three instead of only one) the number of partners in the first part of the survey.
