MONEYISH - Sep 30 - Dating app Zoosk recently analyzed ~5.7M profiles and surveyed 4K daters on the site, only to reveal that the youngest generation of daters, Gen Zers (those currently between the ages of about 8 and 22), might have a few lessons to teach the rest of us.
- We should be open to meeting people even if they don't check all our boxes. Indeed, Gen Zers are the least picky daters and swipe or say yes to 33% of the potential matches they're presented, which is 15% more than millennials and 20% more than Gen Xers and baby boomers.
- Anyone can make the first move. The majority, 59% of Gen Zers are indifferent about whether a man or woman makes the first move online, which is 2% more than millennials, 8% more than Gen Xers and 7% more than Baby Boomers.
- Approach dating casually like Gen Z does, so you don't put so much pressure on yourself to make the date perfect. Gen Zers are more likely than other generations to opt for simple coffee dates instead of drinks or dinner, the survey found.
