For 32 percent of the survey participants, video dates have already become normal and around 28 percent want to maintain this behavior even after the pandemic in order to get to know each other better.
So far, most of the dates have probably taken place in the evening. They met in a bar for a drink and spent the evening together. That has now changed a bit. During the pandemic, most of the meetings took place during the day and in the fresh air, and that is exactly what could stay that way. Because 20 percent want to go for meetings in the light and, above all, without alcoholic beverages in the future.

To meet someone you don’t really know yet? This is likely to happen less often in the future. Because the survey showed that many first want to deal extensively with their potential dating partner before they meet.

The study found that among those who were against getting to know each other via dating apps before the corona pandemic, 57 percent have now changed their minds. 82 percent of those surveyed are now even convinced that it is possible to get to know a partner via a dating app.
