A full 56 percent of Americans say that online dating is a good way to meet people. As the internet becomes more and more relevant in our day-to-day lives, online dating, including sugar daddy dating, no longer carries the stigma it once did.
What else can we learn from the far-reaching studies and surveys researchers have recently conducted of online daters? Here are five surprising facts we’ve pulled together from five different studies that asked for the opinions of people just like you.
Most Online Daters Only Date One Person at a Time
Contrary to the popular belief that online dating leads to “serial daters” who make connections with a ton of people simultaneously, the Huffington Post reports that the majority of online daters actually only date one person at a time.
While 63 percent of women and 53 percent of men tend to be in contact with more than one person at a time via the internet, the vast majority only actually go on dates with one person at a time. These results also tend to extend to sugar daddy and sugar baby dating, where partners usually choose to keep things simple by dating one person at a time despite the slightly non-traditional nature of their relationships (although there are cases where sugar babies and sugar daddies date several sugars at once). Especially in the world of sugar daddy dating, it’s important to be honest with your partner about whether you are looking for a one-on-one romance or plan to date several people at once. In sugar daddy dating it is acceptable to have an NSA (no strings attached) relationship in which you don’t discuss your other dating life or relationships and that is treated as off limits to ask about, if those are the ground rules you both agree to. Some sugar babies can juggle two or three sugar daddies at a time and of course that greatly increases their potential monthly income, if they can manage that many relationships at a time.
Women Use Poorer Grammar Than Men in Online Dating
At least in New York City, according to DNAinfo, when filling out their online dating profiles and communicating with other users, women use poorer grammar than men. The survey decides poor grammar includes mistakes in spelling and punctuation, as well as the extensive use of text-message-style shorthand: “lol”, “smh”, “rofl”, etc.
Women were also more likely to use a lot of emojis than men when communicating. Researchers suggest that women in New York aren’t actually less intelligent or worse at grammar usage. Conversely, the lack of proper grammar seems to be part of a concerted effort to project an aloof, casual demeanor that puts pressure onto men to make the initial connection. One of the main rules of online dating messaging is to write correctly. So sugar babies seeking to meet a distinguished and successful sugar daddy should remember that using poor grammar will make them appear less intelligent and therefore less desirable.
