Desperate Dot Date: New Study Shows Online Daters Willing to Lower Standards 3/1/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new study from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia is reporting that singles know what they want in a date, but are more likely to go out with people that don’t meet those standards if they meet them online. They studied the behavior of 42,000 people between the ages of 18-80 over a few months in 2016 that used the Australian dating site RSVP. The participants date “wish lists” included hair color, eye color, body type, education level, personality type, political and religious views. The authors concluded that instead of searching until they found their dream date, they interacted with people that met some of the criteria on their list. Not surprising, men were more willing to lower their standards than women, and this is great timing for this study to come out since I’m starting DesperateDate dot Now, “because you’re desperate for a date right now.” I’m Chad Whittle, and I’m not gonna lower my standards, I’m gonna marry a Victoria's Secret model on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
