Bharat Matrimony.com, the flagship brand of recently-public company Matrimony.com, has announced the launch of a new Progressive Web App.
Progressive Web Apps are web applications that use modern web capabilities to deliver an app-like user experience.
Of over 220 women surveyed, more than half (55%) reported that even though they generally offer to pay their part, most often their date covers the whole thing.
Of those who said they offered to split the bill on a first date, some women said it would still be nice if their date insisted they didn’t.
Once I started dating online after college, I found myself in many similar situations.
Clearly, the subject of bill-paying is rather touchy.
To figure out why there’s such a taboo around the tab, we decided to send out a follow-up survey.
And what we learned was that even among women who offer to split the bill, they usually don’t.
I didn’t get it — had they never had their dates insist on paying? In a sample of 54,000 members from 2017, millennial women say they would split the bill 35% of the time.
This makes them 9% more likely to do so than older women, but the numbers still surprised me — while simultaneously helping me understand the behavior of my recent dates: 60% of millennial men said they would pay the entire tab on a first date (compared to 67% of older men).
Saichithra S, Matrimony.com’s Chief Portal and Mobile Officer said: “With the rise in smartphone penetration, falling data costs and more of tier 3 town users coming to the platform, we see a clear need for enhanced user experience on the mobile site.
