PR NEWSWIRE - Sep 10 - A new survey by RealMe reveals the potential lasting impact of the coronavirus on online dating behaviors, including attitudes on loneliness and singledom in the "new normal." 67% of respondents say they are "less okay" with being single during this time and a similar proportion increasingly worried about finding a partner. 64% of respondents are less picky with their matches. "There's no denying the pandemic is driving new online behaviors, which are here to stay," says Mark Brooks, online dating expert and CEO of the Internet Dating Excellence Association (IDEA). "95% of respondents plan to continue at least one online dating behavior they developed during the pandemic. 72% of online daters feel more hesitant to have physical contact when meeting someone in person. 76% invest more time in talking to the other person. Over a third of respondents say they plan on having more meaningful conversations even after the pandemic is over. RealMe adds a layer of trust and transparency for people and companies engaged in online marketplaces.
