Plenty of Fish recently conducted a survey which unveiled a new dating trend in modern day dating. Millennials are evaluating potential matches based on whether they share the fondness towards the early 00’s. This new trend is being marked as ‘nostalgia-stanning’.
Nostalgia-stanning is the application of dating habits and trends from 2000-2009 to present-day dating. 57% of those surveyed agreed that it is a turn on when they embark on a date with someone that understands ‘00s references. 29% said their references relate to music while 27% say movies.
The Plenty of Fish survey revealed that inflation may have something to do with this new trend as 67% of respondents claimed that they were nostalgia-stanners due to the fact that life felt easier back then.
