Flirtomatic, one of the most well-known dating site from UK has released an interesting survey related to online flirting habits and the results come as a great news for UK “cougars”: 83% of men have no problem flirting with women ten years older than them. On the other hand, only 58% of women are happy to flirt with older men, but still, what is over 50% should be a happy news for older men as well, isn’t it?
Over 9 thousands Internet users participated to this survey from Flirtomatic and with results such as majority of UK folks flirt more than 5 times a day, it is more like a surprise that there are still tens of thousands of singles all over the UK. The study also revealed that surprisingly women are less likely than men to search for love and long-term commitments through online dating websites.
According to this survey, women are not being sensitive when it comes to their real age, as they were before; actually, only 9% of women lie about their age when flirting with a man but on the other hand 11% of men lie about their age when mingling with a person of opposite sex. This is yet another conclusion that should definitely change the way most senior women usually lie about their real age when trying to hook-up with someone.
Only 28% of women participating to this Flirt Report are searching for their love only while 32% of men are seeking for a romance on online dating site. The explanation comes from Jean Smith (Social Anthropologist) who explained that women are starting to feel more confident in living a single life and also start to enjoy the benefits of no-strings-attached relations, while men are starting to look more into serious long-term relationship while in the same time still enjoying the benefits of no strings intimate pleasure.
The Flirt Report concludes with good news about the future of online dating – virtual dates and parties are increasing in popularity and dating sites are still considered the best ice-breakers for a potential forming couple.
