It's a common debate in my friendship group: some of us feel strongly that women should pay their own way, initiate messaging and sex, and not follow any "dating rules". But other friends of mine are much more old-fashioned and think that a heterosexual relationship should include more traditional gender roles. And while sexists like to hail feminism as the end of dating and romance, I'm happy to announce it's not the case at all.
Match's Singles In America survey is here, giving us insights into every aspect of dating — how we do it, what we like, even problems with FOMO and dating addiction. It's really fascinating stuff and considering it's the most comprehensive survey of singles in America (they surveyed over 5,000 men and women ages 18-70+), it's a huge wealth of information that even looks at larger social issues. And one of the most interesting issues is how gender equality and feminism have effected the way that we date.
Take a look at these stats, because it's time women starting making more first moves.
