However much prices increase, men won’t stop dating. A slow economy can’t stop love
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
A study conducted by WhatsYourPrice.com, the only dating website where generous members can bid for a chance at a first date, addressed the recent price increase of the average date from $121 to $134 for men looking for no-strings-attached relationships, while rising from $194 to $215 for those seeking serious relationships. The website’s study surveyed 3,000 Americans out of its 450,000 members to find the cheapest cities for a date.
“Single people are always going to look for love or a relationship. Men who are looking for no-strings-attached relationships didn’t suffer as high of a price increase on the average date because they don’t usually as much money on entertainment or a pricey restaurant,” says Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of WhatsYourPrice.com. “However much prices increase, men won’t stop dating. A slow economy can’t stop love.”
The study took into account city parking/ cab fares, dining, and entertainment costs between cities in the United States. 73% of men surveyed who said they were only looking for non-serious relationships claimed they spent on average $134 on a date. While 52% men who were looking for serious relationship claimed they spent $215 per date. The following are cities with a population of at least 80,000 in which men said they spent the least amount on the cost of one date:
1. Bloomington, Indiana ($83.50)
2. Boulder, Colorado ($84.25)
3. Jersey City, New Jersey ($91)
4. Salt Lake City, Utah ($91.25)
5. Green Bay, Wisconsin ($95.25)
6. St. Petersburg, Florida ($97)
7. Dallas, Texas ($99.50)
8. Huntington Beach, California($111)
9. Downtown Los Angeles, California ($105.50)
10. Syracuse, New York ($118.75)
Cities that did not make the list for cheapest cities for a date were: Miami, Florida: non-serious - 71% claimed to spend $134 per date, serious – 44% spent $215 per date; New York City, New York: non-serious - 50% claimed to spend $130.50 per date, serious – 39% spent $204 per date; Santa Monica, California: non-serious – 46% claimed to spend $127 per date; serious – 65% spent $198 per date.
