According to him Future of Dating 2023 made by Tinder, the future of dating is different than it used to be. With data from different surveys, they have prepared a whole report that leaves us with data such as that 69%* of Gen Z believe that they are the ones who are renewing the standards when it comes to flirting.
This generation is putting into fashion terms regarding relationships such as situationships, for example, and look for something different in their partners. A sample is that for 75% of them, a partner is more attractive if they are willing to work on their mental health.
But one of the most curious conclusions that Tinder has reached is predicting which generation will have the most successful marriages.
Which is the generation that will have the most successful marriages (according to Tinder)
In the Tinder survey of 4,000 singles aged 18-25 in February 2023, it was stated that the majority of those under 30 use dating apps and 55% have been in a serious relationship with someone they met on Tinder, despite We already told you that there is a growing trend of flirting again in a traditional way in generation Z.
In these appointments, the search for values such as loyalty (79%), respect (78%) and having an open mind (61%) prevails, compared to appearance (56%), some of them key in the longest lasting couples. But the real key lies in what Paul Brunson, Tinder’s global relationship expert, calls “all or nothing dating,” the hardballing. With her, they deal with relationships by always prioritizing themselves and saying from the outset what they are looking for and offering in an honest way.
So those born between 1990 and 2000 are according to Brunson those who will achieve the most successful marriages based on this data and what generation Z is looking for.
He believes that “Gen Z will have the most successful marriages to date as they are investing in emotional well-being and clear communication.” Although the truth is that only with this data in the future will they have the most successful marriages… or not. Because the truth is that we are getting married less and less. In 1982, 20,000 couples divorced compared to 90,000 in 2019, and marriages have fallen by 45% since 1975, Spain being the third country in Europe with the fewest weddings according to data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and Eurostat.
The zetas may bring marriage back into fashion, but what is becoming more common, and not only in generation Z, is the debate about non-monogamous relationships. According to data from the Center for Sociological Research (CIS), four out of ten Spaniards are in favor of open relationships in the couple. This does not mean that there are more relationships of another type, but that social understanding of relationships that break monogamy is increasing traditional.
It could just be something related that has become fashionable according to the spokeswoman for JOY club Spaina social network that is based on the sex positivitythe sociologist Cecilia Bizzotto. She affirms that the youngest have lost their fear of declaring themselves non-monogamous but without fully understanding what polyamory means. “They think that it means having more sexual relations without any bond, but it implies an emotional responsibility with the people with whom you form a bond, like monogamy but with more than one person.”
Is it possible to predict the future of a couple based on what we are looking for? Well I wish it was. What we can do is try build healthier relationships from the beginning so that, they last more or less time, they make us happy. Let’s be boomers, millennials or Zetas.
