Why not have a physical relationship without the complications of a romantic relationship?
Data were compared between the 12 cities from which the largest responses were received: London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo and Beijing.
Some results were produced from a global analysis of the data.
The survey also asked new questions about technology and social networking.
Among those findings:-- Almost 28% say they've dated someone they met online; 20% met their most recent first date that way; almost half (48%) of gay men and lesbian women have dated someone they met online;-- 36% have sent a sexy photo or explicit text;-- 48% of single women and 38% of men research a date on Facebook before the first date;-- 6% of singles say they have broken up with a significant other due to Facebook; for men it was mostly because of pictures (55%), while for women it was posts on another person's wall (48%)."People are jealous and insecure by nature, and Facebook definitely exacerbates that," Atik says.
Whether it's a first date or potential partner, singles have clear "must haves" and "deal breakers" in mind.
