The 2019 study also presented data from a new “nationally representative” 2017 survey for the first time.
“The 65 percent of recently formed same‐sex couples who met online is very similar to what Rosenfeld and Thomas …reported for same‐sex couples in 2009 using the 2009 data alone.” Responding to the results, Thomas told news website Quartz: “People used to make up stories about how they met, so they wouldn’t have to admit that they met online, but now many people embrace it.” Researchers found that the next most common way for same-sex couples to get together in 2017 in the US, after meeting online, was in a bar or restaurant.
It has implications for sexuality as well: In a society where the individual self is paramount, sexuality becomes more free and open. Your sexual partner doesn’t —more freedom for people to explore their sexuality, and more acceptance of those who do. But again not judging..not seein' it from a physical standpoint.
The idea of “do what’s right for you” can be taken too far, toward a self-centered morality that doesn’t take others’ feelings into account. I like my husband's muscles and the way he's the "opposite" of me in so many ways if that makes sense. Maria, all you have to do is try to imagine being a man who is sexually attracted to other men.
See for yourself: Still, there are a few conclusions we can draw: As we did last week, we can see that all groups think, theoretically, that interracial relationships are acceptable, yet again whites are the least willing to have such a relationship themselves.
This time it’s the men, not the women, who prefer most to keep to their own: it’s interesting that both in reply patterns and in their answers to these two match questions, the behavior of white straight women and white gay men are so closely parallel.
To our friends in the gay and lesbian communities: thanks for being patient and waiting for this data.
Nearly two-thirds of same-sex couples that got together in 2017 met online, according to a new study in the US.
The latest research published on January 28 found that 65 percent of same-sex couples that got together in 2017 met online, compared to to nearly four in 10 (39 percent) of straight couples.
