Study: 15% Women Want a Proposal via Tech Device
If you are thinking about popping the question in 2014, perhaps you may want to consider posting the question or maybe even tweeting it. A recent survey conducted in UK found that 15% of women would prefer that a man propose to them via a tech device. Of that 15%, 40% chose social media as their tech medium of choice, while 35% selected a proposal “over the phone.”
The survey included responses from 7,000 people in the UK. The data touched on a number of engagement-related topics, such as the best holiday for proposals (Christmas Eve), and whether women should propose to men (65% of men said “no”). Women also showed little interest in proposals through song (6%), dance (6%) or poem (6%).
Even if the world is becoming more tech-savvy, some old-fashioned traditions still hang tough. The most desirable way a man can propose to a woman: simply saying “Will you marry me?” — a strategy preferred by 51% of female respondents.
