12% of people found an exclusive relationship online, after leaving a failed relationship that started offline. In a survey of single parents, 23% said they found a second opportunity at true love through online dating.
Indian dating app QuackQuack revealed that 13% of single parents prefer online over offline dating, as it enables them to mention their kids upfront and weed out people who are uninterested.
18% of divorced men over 33 years old told QuackQuack that they tried dating apps to help them find love again. They shared that online dating is beneficial as people mention their marital history from the start, enabling them to find partners with similar lived experiences.
While some people take to dating apps for a second chance, how do people feel about giving their ex a second chance? The survey found 13% of users have given their exes a second chance.
11% of male respondents shared they are giving their previously failed relationship a second shot.
When it comes to first dates, most people don’t give out second chances. If a bad date goes badly, only 26% of men strongly believe in a second chance. Women are even less forgiving, with 22% of women saying a second chance is not advisable since the bad date could just be repeated.
QuackQuack’s Founder and CEO, Ravi Mittal, said, “We currently have more than 23 million users, and around 12% of these people are divorcees and single parents, all taking a second shot at love.”
The survey spoke with 14,000 men and women from tier 1 and 2 cities in India.
