Online Daters Say Not Having Job is OK

( - May 13, 2009) A new online dating survey has revealed that online daters, in mass, no longer care about the job status of the person they decide to go out on a date with.

Earlier this month, online social dating network Zoosk conducted a survey of more than 1,000 singles and the survey had some revealing results:

> 78% of singles polled say that they would date someone who currently does not have a job. Men where much more likely (92%) than women (52%) to go on a date with someone that is currently unemployed.

> 80% of singles polled say that they would date someone who currently lives with their parents.

> 85% of singles polled say that you can have fun dating without doing anything that costs money.

The poll is interesting in that it shows a changing attitude as the economy worsens.

"Everyone has heard that the economy is drawing more people to online dating, but we wanted to hear how singles felt about going on a date with someone who has been personally affected by the economy," said Alex Mehr, co-founder and co-CEO of Zoosk. "The results of this poll show that singles are not letting the economy get in the way of their dating lives."
