Women who are not looking for a committed relationship are 80 percent more likely to say they drink “often,” while men looking for a little non-committal fun are 55 percent more likely to indicate that they drink often.
“I definitely think that age is playing factor here,” said Sarah Gooding, a PR manager and dating coach for Plenty of Fish.
Match metaphors are conceptual frameworks that allow individuals to make sense of new concepts by drawing upon familiar experiences and frame-works.
“When you are younger and looking for a casual relationship, you’re likely going to the bar every Friday and Saturday night.” “But as you are getting into your 30s and 40s and you’re looking for something more serious, you’re not going to the bar every night,” she to B&WB.
“Plus, you know that alcohol can cloud your judgment, and you want a level head when you’re trying to meet someone for marriage.” Simply put, the data show we tend to drink less as we grow up and settle down, and we tend to drink more when we’re young and looking for a good time (and not necessarily a good girl or a good boy). “I think the people who say that they don’t drink at all are being very honest, because not drinking can actually work against them in the dating scene,” Gooding said.
Online dating services usually provide unmoderated matchmaking over the Internet, through the use of personal computers or cell phones.
Users of an online dating service would usually provide personal information, to enable them to search the service provider's database for other individuals.

The opposite is true amongst people looking for more casual encounters.The marketplace metaphor may also resonate with participants' conceptual orientation towards the process of ﬁnding a romantic partner.Most sites allow members to upload photos or videos of themselves and browse the photos and videos of others.The dating website Plenty Of just released a new study on singles and drinking, and the findings shed interesting light on how our attitudes towards alcohol change as we get more serious about finding a mate.The study involved 11 million singles between the ages of 21 and 50 who have set up profiles on the dating site.Of course there’s always the possibility that people looking for a long-term relationship consume alcohol as frequently as everyone else, but they downplay their drinking habits on their profiles in order to make themselves seem more stable and upstanding to a possible mate. “If people were going to lie about their drinking habits, it would probably be by claiming to be a ‘social’ drinker, because so many singles that indicate that they drink socially – it’s the safest answer.” Other findings that came out of the study show that wine is the adult beverage that single women say they drink most often (it enjoys a nearly twice the popularity with the ladies than beer), while single men say they prefer beer by a very large margin (almost five times more than wine, their next favorite tipple).
