Daters around the world are optimistic about romance in 2023, according to a new survey from Bumble. The dating app surveyed over 10,000 users from countries all over the globe, and the vast majority (70%) are feeling positive about the romance that lies ahead. Whether they’re looking for a serious relationship or just some fun, these daters believe that 2023 will be a great year for finding love. Here’s what daters can expect:

– In 2023, daters will be looking for emotional maturity before physical looks.

In 2023, daters will be looking for something different in their partners than they were in 2022. 38% of them will be open to dating beyond their typical physical type, and 28% will be less concerned about dating the type of person that others expect. 63% of daters are now looking for emotional maturity before physical looks.

This shift in priorities is likely due to the fact that many people are now spending more time at home and are therefore able to focus on qualities that they may have previously overlooked. As we move into a new era of dating, it is clear that people are increasingly valuing substance over style.

– More single people are setting boundaries to better manage their dating lives.

According to the survey, more single people are taking control of their dating lives by setting boundaries. 52% of respondents said they have set more boundaries over the past year. The most common reasons cited for setting boundaries were emotional needs (63%), being more intentional about how they put themselves out there (59%), and protecting themselves from overcommitting socially (53%).

Setting boundaries can be a difficult but important task, especially when it comes to dating. By being clear about what they need and want, singles can help to ensure that their dating experiences are positive and fulfilling.

– In 2023, daters will be looking for someone with a good work/life balance.

In 2023, daters will be looking for balance. The study found that 49% of respondents are prioritizing their own work/life balance, and 52% of people are actively creating more space for breaks and rest in their lives. The study also found that 54% care more about their partner’s work/life balance than they do their partner’s career status.

This shift in priorities is likely to have a major impact on the dating scene, as 13% of respondents said they would no longer date someone who has a very demanding job. With more and more people seeking a healthy balance between work and play, it’s clear that the days of sacrificing personal time for a successful career are coming to an end.

– There is an increase in digital nomads and long-distance relationships due to the pandemic.

In 2023, connections will span multiple cities as 14% of respondents have explored the idea of becoming a digital nomad and 33% of daters are now more open to relationships with people who are not in their current city. The global pandemic has catapulted many into situations where they are suddenly working from home with no end in sight. For some, the thought of remaining in one spot for an extended period of time is daunting. The lure of a more nomadic lifestyle- one where you can pick up and work from anywhere in the world- is beckoning.

While the traditional 9-5 in an office may look a bit different in the coming years, the way we connect with others will continue to evolve. With so many of us now used to communicating virtually, it’s likely that long-distance relationships will become more commonplace. And as we become more comfortable with meeting people online, daters will be less restricted by location when it comes to finding love. So whatever your plans are for 2023, remember that connections can span multiple cities- and that there’s someone out there waiting to connect with you.

– Men are increasingly rejecting traditional gender roles and challenging stereotypes.

The study by the dating app Bumble shows that men are increasingly rejecting traditional gender roles. 74% of men surveyed said that they had examined their behavior more closely over the last year, and 52% said that they were actively challenging stereotypes that suggest men should not show emotions.

This is a remarkable shift, and it appears that men are now more comfortable than ever before with expressing themselves openly and honestly. This is good news for everyone, as it suggests that we are moving closer to a world where people can be their true selves without fear of judgment. With any luck, this trend will continue and we will see even more people breaking down the artificial barriers that have been holding us back for far too long.

– People are becoming more open about their sexuality and exploring their desires.

When it comes to sex, daters are becoming more open and candid. The Bumble survey found that just over 40% are approaching sex and intimacy in an exploratory way. This is a marked increase from previous years, when people were more likely to shy away from discussing their sexual wants and needs.

Additionally, the survey found that 20% of people have explored their sexuality more in the past year. This suggests that people are becoming more comfortable with their own desires and are less afraid to speak up about them.

Furthermore, the survey found that 34% of people aren’t having sex right now, but they’re okay with that. This indicates that people are feeling less pressure to perform sexually and are instead focusing on other aspects of their relationships.

Ultimately, these findings suggest that daters are becoming more confident and candid about sex, which is a positive development for both individuals and relationships.

– Money will become less of a taboo topic in relationships as the stigma around discussing finances decreases.

In 2023, money will be less of a taboo date topic. A Bumble survey found that 28% of people report that they’re setting financial boundaries in their dating lives, and 32% of people are less impressed by over-the-top first dates. Instead, 57% of people are more interested in casual dates.

This shift in attitude is likely to continue as the stigma around discussing finances decreases. Money is a major source of stress for many people, and being able to talk openly about financial concerns can help to build trust and intimacy in a relationship.

Moreover, as the cost of living continues to rise, it’s becoming increasingly important to be on the same page financially with a partner. Therefore, it’s likely that money will become less of a taboo topic in the next few years as people become more open about their finances.

– Many things will change about dating in 2023, but some constants will remain.

In conclusion, while many things will change in the dating world by 2023, there are some constants that will remain.

People will always be attracted to those who have a positive outlook on life and are emotionally mature. Physical attractiveness will still be important, but it will be less important than other qualities such as someone’s work/life balance or emotional maturity.

The trend of people wanting to date others with similar interests and lifestyles is likely to continue, as is the increase in long-distance relationships and digital nomads. Men are continuing to break free from traditional gender roles and stereotypes, which is resulting in more equality in relationships.

And finally, money will continue to be a taboo topic for many couples, but as the stigma around discussing finances decreases, people will become more open about their financial situation with their partners.
