Texting 'is most common platform for flirting'Posted on: July 4, 2013 10:57:38
Some old romantics who are getting themselves back into the dating game may like nothing more than heading to a bar for a spot of flirting with a sexy stranger - but it seems this type of activity is becoming increasingly rare.
According to a recent survey, a growing number of tech-savvy Britons prefer to hide behind their laptop or smartphone when chatting to someone new, instead of getting themselves out there for a spot of real-life dating.
Researchers, who questioned 1,500 people aged between 16 and 24, found that although 83 per cent of respondents said they were experts in the art of seduction, half of these confessed to only flirting on the web.
The study, which was carried out by One Poll on behalf of drinks brand Oasis, found individuals below the age of 25 did not feel comfortable being suggestive with a sexy stranger at work, preferring to do so when they were out with friends or at a party.
Almost half said they now take part in 'tech flirting', which combines the use of smilies and instant messaging when in the early stages of a relationship.
Online dating has helped shy individuals who may not dare to approach an attractive stranger while out and about, as it means they can get to know a prospective partner from the comfort of their own home.
However, it seems people are less likely to take the plunge with someone they fancy in real life as a result of this increasing trend.
One Poll researchers noted that the ongoing popularity of technology as a method of communication means more traditional meeting spots for new couples - such as on holiday - are becoming less important.
Holiday romances lack relevance in this day and age, with only 18 per cent of respondents agreeing an exotic destination is the best place to try out their best chat-up lines.
