Technology in relationships is not just limited to coordination and logistics, it now encompasses even the more intimate moments.
A majority of those in couples maintain their own separate email and social media accounts, though a smaller number report sharing accounts and calendars. The broad statistical picture looks like this: As a broad pattern, those who have been married or partnered ten years or less have digital communication and sharing habits that differ substantially from those who have been partnered longer.
Some of this is about timing— technology a decade ago was squarely in the pre-Facebook, pre-smartphone era, and just ten years into the development of the commercially popular Web.
Telephone interviews were conducted in English and Spanish by landline (1,125) and cell phone (1,127, including 571 without a landline phone).
For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling is plus or minus 2.3 percentage points.
“He has a weird name.” Surely we can get over this, non? Unless his parents live in the Hollywood Hills, than yes, we can overlook this.
I challenge all the single girls out there this weekend to be OPEN.
Meeting your perfect match through friends or at your local coffee shop is highly unlikely. I’ve had girlfriends pass over someone for living as “far” as Langley or Pitt Meadows. Too short: I can appreciate physical attraction is either there or it’s not. He has no sense of style: This, ladies, we can change.
Sorry ladies, but who’s to say your perfect guy is sitting in a wine bar in Yaletown or Kits waiting for you to arrive? Weird name: This is perhaps the most petty excuse I’ve heard. Too eager: If he’s messaged you more than once on an online dating site, don’t take this as a bad sign. But don’t penalize a guy because he doesn’t tower over you in 5 inch heels. I haven’t met a guy yet who wasn’t open to a little tweaking in the wardrobe department. Most of the women I know are breadwinners in their households or relationships, and this is not uncommon. Unless he’s living in his parents basement, which is a definite no-go.
The percentage of eligible women in their thirties seems to be an ever-growing number.
