Poll: Most Gay Men Open To Marrying Someone They Meet On An App
A new survey released by Jack'd finds that despite the stigma, an overwhelming majority of gay men are open to love and LTR's with men they meet on location-based apps. According to the poll, 86 percent of respondents said they would consider marrying someone they met on the app, while 29 percent say they had already met a boyfriend through Jack'd.
Other findings from the survey as the press release reports:
Jack’d polled users across America using an in-app survey, which revealed that more than half of gay men (55 percent) foresee marriage equality in every state within 10 years. Only 11 percent felt that it would never be legal in every state. Overall users seem to be optimistic at the prospect of same-sex marriage with 86 percent stating they either live in a state where marriage is already legal or foresee its legalization.
Users also expressed their thoughts on the President with 81 percent saying they are happy that Obama has drawn direct comparisons between gay rights and the civil rights movement and 71 percent of respondents stating they believe Obama is doing outstanding or good work toward gay rights. Though when questioned on if the progression toward marriage was happening fast enough 58 percent of respondents acknowledged things are moving in the right direction, but just not quick enough.
“It’s great to see such positivity in the Jack’d community for the steps America has taken toward promoting same-sex marriage equality” said Adam Segel, Jack’d chief executive officer. “Jack’d represents such a young and racially diverse community, 80 percent of our users are 18 to 30, so it’s good to know this community feels supported and acknowledged.”
