Online Daters More Confident Than Offline Daters

( - March 12, 2004) Tickle Matchmaking, an online dating service from Tickle Inc., has revealed research results showing that online daters are more confident, romantic and committed to a relationship than non-online daters. The research was conducted by the Tickle Research Group, Tickle's in-house think tank responsible for research and development of the company's PhD certified personality, relationship and career tests.

The findings are based on a sample of more than 250,000 singles in the U.S., who responded to Tickle's personality and relationship tests. Highlights include the following:

-- Online daters are more confident.

-- Only 69 percent of online daters have trouble asking someone out on a date versus 79 percent of non-online daters.

-- Forty-six percent say they feel comfortable making direct eye contact with someone they have just met versus 34 percent of non-online daters.

-- Only 50 percent get flustered talking to someone they're attracted to versus 62 percent of non-online daters.

-- Online daters are more romantic.

-- Eighty-five percent of online daters believe that everyone has a soulmate versus 81 percent of non-online daters.

-- Seventy-eight percent believe in love at first sight versus 70 percent of non-online daters.

-- Online daters are more committed to a relationship.

-- Ninety-two percent of online daters are looking for a long term relationship versus 89 percent of non-online daters.

-- Only 18 percent try to end things first when they think someone might want to break up with them versus 27 percent of non-online daters.

-- Eighty-six percent would be willing to go out of their way to meet a romantic partner versus 75 percent of non-online daters.

"The findings from our study show that, contrary to popular stereotypes, online daters have several personality traits that people desire most in a partner -- confidence, romance and commitment," said Dr. Courtney Johnson, director of research at Tickle Inc. "More than 40 million singles are using online dating services, and with such a large pool of quality individuals, chances are, your ideal mate is somewhere out on the Internet."
