NEW YORK, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of Father's Day on June 20th 2010,, a top dating application on Facebook Platform with over 15 million users, polled its fans on its Facebook Fan Page to learn about the influence fathers have on their children when it comes to dating. Overall, the results revealed that while nearly half of female respondents want to date someone like their father, for both men and women their father's opinion doesn't count for very much in their search for love.

Results show:

  • 46% of female respondents said they want to date someone who is like their father.
  • 65% of responders said if they were married, their husband/wife would immediately become more important to them than their father.
  • 78% of respondents said they would never let their father pick out a date for them.
  • 67% of male respondents would date someone even if their father disapproved of them and nearly 59% would marry someone regardless of their father's disapproval.
