For the sixth year in a row, Match has released their Singles in America report. As is the case every year, the study exams the habits and dating styles of singles across the United States, covering every single topic you can possibly imagine. From politics to sexual kinks to who’s talking about having kids on the first date, the survey of over 5,000 singles leaves no stone unturned.
The 2015 survey was conducted in part of with one of my favorites, Dr. Helen Fisher. Dr. Fisher is the premiere anthropologist when it comes to love, relationships, and how we interact with each other on a biological and evolutionary level. (If you’ve never seen her TED Talk, “The Brain in Love,” you really must.) According to Fisher, not only is this year special in that it’s an election year so conversation is turning toward that topic even in the dating world, but the results revealed “the pulse of the single’s psyche…and our basic human nature.”
Although the study unearthed some more serious topics, like the fact that Trump supporters want to have sex on film with you, it also found other things like what foods will attract a second date and why you should probably be ordering a drink. Fascinating, no?
Here are seven things to eat and drink on a first date, according to Dr. Helen Fisher and Match.
