Calling Mom Every Day? That’s a Huge Plus for People Dating in New Jersey

NEW HOPE, Pa. , June 29 /Businesswire/ - The Meet Group, Inc., a leading provider of interactive dating solutions, has announced the results of a recent summer survey, which seeks to determine the state of dating and relationships among MeetMe users. With over 3,000 respondents, this year’s survey focused on dating activity and perceptions, including how respondents viewed their own attractiveness, expectations of a potential date and other qualifications and attributes members look for in a partner to better understand how people view dating and themselves.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220629005156/en/

In what could be considered a confirmation of self-confidence and self-awareness, data from New Jersey unearthed some interesting insights about the state’s dating pool. Most notably, close to 80 percent of respondents from The Garden State agreed they would want to be with someone who called their mother every day (neighboring state New York also ranked in top 5 with 74 percent).

“Anecdotally, people from New Jersey place a great deal of importance on family,” says Catherine Connelly, SVP, Marketing of MeetMe parent company, The Meet Group. “While the data took us by surprise a little, it stands to reason that this kind of family-oriented culture would yield these results.”

In addition to the proclivity to love their mothers, people from New Jersey have a healthy dose of confidence. In the survey, people from the state ranked themselves in the top 5 for most attractive (a 7.3 out of 10) and NJ is one of the states least likely to be stood up on a date. Residents of the state also rated the New Jersey accent as the sexiest (the New York accent was second).

While it may not connect directly to New Jersey’s large Italian-American population (around 1.45 million), people looking to impress their dates with a home-cooked meal chose pasta (overall, steak was in the #1 slot in the U.S. and grilled cheese made the list just 5 percent of the time).

“Having grown up in New Jersey, it’s heartening to see positive attributes and thinking from MeetMe fans in the state,” says Connelly. “It is a special place to a lot of people, especially families. And if our members find a connection because of a daily phone call to mom, that’s certainly something to be proud of.”
