Drawing opinions from a random group of London respondents, the survey asked a handful of questions regarding their thoughts on contemporary dating. ‘If you were single and a member of a dating website who would you expect to make the first move?’ generated some of the most interesting responses, with a huge 48% of people maintaining that it doesn't make a difference whether the man or the woman makes the first move.
Shockingly, it was respondents falling into the age bracket 50-59 who made up the majority of modern minded thinkers, with a huge 61% claiming it doesn't matter who makes the first move. This compares to 38.46% of 40-49 year olds, 53.57% of 30-39 year olds and 40.91% of 18-29 year olds. The large contingent of older respondents with avant-garde attitudes towards making the first move confirms that old-fashioned traditions are well and truly on the way out. Instead, the figures reveal the emergence of a new, forward thinking dating trend that is set to shape the face of contemporary romances.
Alex Rowley, Founder of Justaskmeout.com said, 'The results of our latest survey revealed fascinating insight into the modern world of dating. One of the most interesting findings was the fact that attitudes towards old fashioned dating traditions are clearly transforming. Not only do almost 50% of Londoners think it doesn't matter who makes the first move but a huge portion of this response group was made up of over 50s. It’s goodbye to outdated traditions, hello to a forward thinking world of dating!'
