First Dates Aren’t As ‘Busy’ As They’ve Been
Are people being more "traditional" when beginning a relationship? Signs point to yes.
People are actually 19 percent less likely to consider sleeping with someone on the first date today, compared to 10 years ago (69 percent in 2005, 50 percent in 2015), according to extensive data from OkCupid.
The dating website surveyed one million people in 2005 and 2015, and discovered that attitudes toward love and sex have changed a lot in the last decade.
Other findings include that people are 15 percent less critical now about women talking openly about their sexual exploits (71 percent in 2005, 86 percent in 2015) and 18 percent less likely to agree with the statement that there's such a thing as having too many sex partners (30 percent in 2005, 48 percent in 2015).
So if you're feeling weird about sleeping together right off the bat, you're not alone.
