OneGoodLove.com Announces Valentine’s 2013 “LGBT State of the Date Report”
65% of LGBT Singles More Likely to Desire Marriage As States Pass Marriage-Rights Laws  

Los Angeles, CA – February 11, 2013—OneGoodLove.com (www.onegoodlove.com), the Internet’s leading relationship-focused online dating service for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) singles, announced today the release of its Valentine’s 2013 “LGBT State of the Date Report.” The report, based on a survey of over 500 LGBT singles using OneGoodLove, as well as analysis of the stated dating preferences of OneGoodLove’s more than 150,000 members, is a Valentine’s Day snapshot of LGBT dating experiences today.
Gay And Lesbian Daters Are Optimistic About Love And Marriage
Eighty-seven percent of LGBT singles surveyed are optimistic they will find love in 2013, with 39% reporting they are “very” or “extremely” optimistic.  Lesbians are slightly more optimistic than gay men.
Sixty-five percent of gay and lesbian singles report that as states pass laws providing same-sex marriage rights, they find themselves more likely to consider marriage as their long-term dating goal.  Gay men (68%) were more likely than lesbians (58%) to say this.
Somewhat contradictory, when oneGoodLove.com members are asked directly by other members about their relationship goal, only 8% claim “I am looking for marriage.”  LGBT singles, like their hetersexual counterparts, may not want to scare away prospective romantic partners by making marriage the topic of first date conversations.
What LGBT Singles Want
When asked about the one quality that might make them fall in love with a romantic partner, 64% of gay men indicated it was someone who made them feel special, 23% indicated a great sense of humor, 7% indicated attractiveness, and 5% indicated intelligence.  
Forty-five percent of lesbians report sense of humor as the one quality most likely to make them fall in love, followed by 42% who might fall in love with a woman who made them feel special.  Eleven percent of lesbians might fall in love with a woman due to her intelligence.  
Not a single lesbian (0%), and only 1% of gay men surveyed, said being good in bed was the quality most likely to make them fall in love with a potential romantic partner.
Eighty-seven percent of OneGoodLove members are open to meeting a partner with an ethnicity different from their own.  
Forty-one percent reported that they wanted children one day. 
Almost half of LGBT singles don’t want to date a drinker, and 64% of gay men, and 60% of lesbians, don’t want to date a smoker.  Smoking status was the matching criteria rated most important to oneGoodLove singles. 
Fifty-two percent of OneGoodLove singles said their ideal first date is a dinner date.  
Thirty-six percent of gay men, and 41% of lesbians, are willing to travel 50 miles to meet the right date.
Technology and LGBT Dating
LGBT singles reported they are more flirtatious in person (37%), or while texting (36%), than they are using email (15%), while on Facebook (6%), or over the phone (6%).  Not a single LGBT person reported they were the most flirtatious on Twitter (0%), which was one of the possible answers.
When asked their opinion regarding the worst romantic transgression made with technology or social networks, 55% of LGBT singles said breaking up with someone via text or email.  13% said changing your relationship status on your social network to “single” before notifying the person you were dating about the change.  11% said cyber stalking a potential romantic partner, and 10% said speaking badly in your social networks about an ex.
What Moms and Dads Want for LGBT Singles
When asked to report what their parents, “deep in their hearts,” hoped the ultimate outcome of their dating lives would be, 73% of LGBT singles said said their parents would want them to be in a happy, loving relationship with someone of the same sex, while 23% said their parents would prefer them to be in a heterosexual relationship, even if it wasn’t loving or fulfilling.  Four percent reported their parents would want them to be in a loving relationship, fully out as a transgender man or woman.
Lesbians were more likely (32%) to say their parents would want them to be in a heterosexual relationship, even if it wasn’t loving or fulfilling, than were gay men (20%).

“As same-sex marriage rights are achieved state by state, and with a president who has unequivocally stated he is on the side of full rights and equality for the LGBT community, there’s never been a  more promising Valentine’s season for LGBT singles hoping to find their one special someone,” said Frank Mastronuzzi, Co-founder and Chief Love Officer at OneGoodLove.com.  Mastronuzzi is featured inDan Slater’s just-released book, Love in the Time of Algorithms, which looks at the development of the online dating industry and what technology means for the future of relationships. "
