NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent poll, AreYouInterested.com, a top dating application on Facebook Platform with over 15 million users, discovered singles are spending less time looking for romance and more time watching the World Cup. AreYouInterested.com posted the survey on its AreYouInterested.com Facebook Fan Page to find out if the World Cup is cramping summer dating. Overall, the results revealed that singles are making the World Cup a greater priority than finding romance.
- 58% of participants are spending less time looking for dates because they prefer to watch the World Cup.
- 40% of participants would cancel a date to watch the World Cup Championship game.
- 78% of participants would go on a date to watch the World Cup at a social venue.
- 44% of participants would be turned off if someone they were seeing suggested watch the World Cup for a date.
More than 200 users responded to the poll and 80% of participants were men.
When asked about the results, Clifford Lerner, CEO of SNAP Interactive, Inc. said, "It's no surprise that the World Cup, a world-wide event that only happens once every four years, would trump summer dating. After seeing these results, I would recommend if you want to ask someone out, incorporate the World Cup into that date. Watching a sports game, especially something as popular as the World Cup, will automatically give you something to talk about and can create an instant connection as you cheer on your teams."
