Young singles prefer to connect via video before meeting dating app matches IRL. 

Nov 11 2021

Young singles prefer to connect via video before meeting dating app matches IRL. YPulse’s Finding Love Post-COVID trend research told you how young singles have been dating during the pandemic, with video dates and virtual experiences becoming popular alternative date options. According to Match’s 11th annual Singles in America study, video dates are growing in popularity as young singles use them to vet chemistry before committing to an in-person meetup—(as YPulse predicted would be the case). The study found that 51% of Gen Z and 45% of Millennial singles have had a video date before meeting IRL, and 70% of young singles prefer to get to know someone via phone call (not text) before meeting someone in person for a first date. Hearing someone’s voice before agreeing to a first date has also become more popular during COVID-era dating, and Hinge and Grindr are two apps that have recently added audio features to make this possible.
