Three date rule, play hard to get, men should pay, dress your best; you’ve probably heard every piece of traditional dating advice. But how much of it translates to IRL dating behaviour? Research shows Indian singles don’t pay attention to traditional dating rules or gender related responsibilities, so it may be time for a dating rule upgrade.

Do women care about who sends the first message, how do men like to express romantic feelings, how soon do you wait after a first date to text each other and how cool is too cool when on a date?

Tinder commissioned a market survey of 1500 Indian singles from 7 cities, across the 18-34 age group who own a smartphone, and here’s what it shows.

When you use online dating services, which type of details could turn you on/off when looking at a potential date’s profile?

85% say the profile picture is the biggest turn on.
