Modern dating secrets revealedPosted on: March 27, 2013 14:55:25
For any UK singles re-entering the dating market after a long time away, little is likely to have changed.
Granted, technology is now an integral part of the process for singletons looking for love, but when it comes to dating itself, many of the same rules still apply.
Going out on a first date to somewhere like a coffee shop or restaurant is still just as popular now as it was five, ten or even 20 years ago, and expecting nothing more than a kiss on the cheek after the meeting is still pretty common.
However, according to new research men now expect to sleep with a partner on their third date, compared to the average woman who won't consider it until they have been out five times.
In the new MSN.co.uk study, which looked at the shift in 21st century dating, it was revealed that men still tend to pay for the first date dinner and drinks.
Despite this, women are now keener to split the bill later on in the relationship, with most couples in the study admitting to equally paying their way from the second date onwards.
In addition, men also were found to be more willing to splash the cash when dating to hurry the romance along, with as many as one in five men 'expecting' to sleep with their date if they spend over £100 on a meal.
Dr Sam Spurr, a relationship expert at the website, said the research dispelled the myth that modern dating means all singletons are jumping into bed on the first date.
"It's astounding to think that in 2013, one fifth of men expect a woman to go 'all the way' if they've spared no expense on a date. Thankfully most women are not falling for that and refuse to sleep with a man simply because he's a big spender. No one should feel pressure to slip between the sheets until they are ready."
The findings also revealed the average cost of a first date totals £47, with men willing to spend more than women.
Blokes were also outed as the biggest spenders when it came to pre-date treats, splashing out as much as £46.79 on grooming, compared to women who spent a fiver less, on average.
