“Christian Grey represents what women in today’s society want in a partner,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. “Financial stability, consideration, mutually beneficial and sexual adventure. Which is why many women are surprised to see that our dating website, where they can find their own version of the fictional Mr. Grey, exists.”

The website experienced another increase in the number of dating profiles which use keywords from the book, including character names and the term “Fifty Shades”. Of the more than 2 million members, 69,674 mentioned “Christian Grey”, 15,102 mentioned “Anastasia Steele” and 13,975 mentioned “Fifty Shades” in their dating profiles or headlines.

Subsequently, SeekingArrangement.com used data from exit polls and a survey through the website to reveal how many women succeeded in finding their 50 Shades relationship. The
website found that 37 percent of women claimed to have found their “Christian Grey” and 62.5 percent of men claimed they found relationships with women similar to “Anastasia Steele”.
