More Than 70% of Singles Ready to Commit

( - April 1, 2004) TRUEBeginnings, a new online relationship service, has revealed that 71.2 percent of today's singles are ready to commit to love again.

Based on a survey of 36,000 single men and women, of which more than 6,200 respondents were single mothers and about 3,700 were single fathers, the study concluded the following:

* Having children plays a minor role in the decision -- Single women with children are more willing to commit to a relationship (76 percent) than are those women without children (74 percent), while single men with children are just as willing to commit (67 percent) as those without children (67 percent).

* Readiness to commit increases with age -- More than 84 percent of singles who are at least 31 years of age or older are ready to commit to a new relationship, while only 61 percent of singles below the age of 31 are ready.

* Men are slightly less likely to be ready to commit again than women -- More than 76 percent of single women are ready to commit again, while only 67 percent of single men are ready to take a new step.

"While we aren't surprised to find that singles want to engage in loving and lasting romantic relationships, we are surprised at how many respondents are ready and willing to take that next step," said Dr. James Houran, Director of Psychological Studies at TRUEBeginnings and a 14-year veteran in the field of research and clinical psychology. "We're also surprised to find that children play a minor role in a single's decision to date. While our survey didn't reveal the specific reasons behind this, we believe that online dating has enabled singles to be much more selective about who they bring into their lives and the lives of their children."
