Online Dating Study Claims That Men Value Love $73 More Than Sex

WhatsYourPrice.com, an online dating website where users buy or sell first dates, just announced the results of a three month long study which concludes that men value love $73 more than sex.

Love = $194, Sex = $121

According to the online dating study, men seeking casual or no-strings-attached relationships paid an average of $121 for a first date, whereas single men looking for serious long-term relationships paid an average of $194 for the opportunity of finding love.

“We often hear the stereotype that men value sex and women value love,” says Founder & CEO of WhatsYourPrice.com and MIT alumni, Brandon Wade. “Our online dating study shows this stereotype is wrong. In fact, men value love more than sex by over 60%.”

The online dating study also finds that men who seek only casual or no-strings attached relationships tend to be serial daters and more prolific, paying for first dates over 2.1 times more, than commitment-minded men.

Over 50,000 men were included in this online dating study. To determine the value of love and sex, the average price members paid for a first date on WhatsYourPrice.com was calculated. The value of love is determined as the price paid for a first date by singles looking only for long-term relationships and marriage. The value of sex is calculated as the price paid for a first date by those seeking short-term relationships, extra-marital affairs and casual relationships.

No thank you.

  1. This is the greatest thing ever. It’s even greater than penguins.

  2. $121 for a first date? That’s crazy! When meeting girls from dating sites we just go for a coffee. If I’ve known the person a while and am seriously interested in them then I’ll take them somewhere nice for $50 or less for a nice dinner and entertainment.
