Singles Study Reveals Increasing Demand for First Dates on Valentine’s Day

Share Article

While Valentine’s Day is the most common date night for couples, more singles are going to great lengths to seek their own valentine--a dating survey conducted by WhatsYourPrice.com, the world’s only dating-auction website, found that more first date offers (369,282) are made the 4 weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day compared to any month of the year. Men paid an average of $129 for a first date on Valentine’s Day, which is 62 percent higher than the annual average first date offer of $80 on the website.

“Our study revealed that as Valentine’s Day neared, both the number of offers and the average first date price steadily increased.”

How far would you go to get a date this Valentine’s Day? For some singles, not even money is an issue. A singles study conducted by WhatsYourPrice.com, the world’s only dating auction website, discovered that Valentine’s Day isn’t strictly for couples.

369,282 first-date offers were made the 4 weeks preceding Valentine’s Day—the most of any one-month period of the year.

“Our study revealed that as Valentine’s Day neared, both the number of offers and the average first date price steadily increased,” says Brandon Wade, the CEO and Founder of WhatsYourPrice.com. “Offering money for a first date is rather unconventional in the dating world, but it proves that Valentine’s Day is as important a holiday for singles as it is for couples.”
