The Generational Dating Gap is a Real Dilemma

To get everyone up to speed, including myself, I received some fascinating research I would like to share. Here are some FACTZ to make you aware of in the dating generational dating game of Millennials and Gen Z:

  • 72% of millennials make a conscious decision to be single. They value freedom and independence.
  • 75% of Gen Z are single.
  • 44% of millennials are married.
  • Millennials spend an average of two hours a day on dating apps.
  • 74% of millennials and Gen Zers use dating apps.
  • 90% of Gen Z say they are frustrated with dating apps.
  • The most popular reason for ghosting is to avoid confrontation.
  • 56% of women and men have been ghosted.
  • 29% of millennials and Gen Z have married at the same age as 59% of older generations.
  • 30% of millennials and Gen Z say that their financial situation is holding them back from dating.
  • Gen Z is having less casual sex than previous generations. 24% of Gen Zers have sex on an everyday basis.
  • Attitudes to cheating and open relationships are more liberal than before, as many people (43%) want a monogamous relationship as a non-monogamous relationship.

So pretty much, I’m screwed. Thank you to Briana MacWilliam for compiling this information from Pew Research and other statistical sites.
