What do matchmakers want? – Napidoktor

The proverb says “Suba to suba, guba to guba,” but how true is it still in love today? Are we really looking for qualities like ours primarily in the other, or are we more attracted to those who are different from us in something?

Scientific explanations can be found almost anywhere, but as another saying goes, “love is blind”. On the occasion of the Day of Lovers, Randivonal.hu found out, based on internal statistics from 2021, what kind of matchmaking strategies their users want to have for a serious relationship today.

That’s the ideal age difference according to matchmakers

When it comes to finding the real thing, the question may arise in what age group do people look for a partner for today: is it really true that men prefer a younger couple, women an older couple? According to recent statistics from Randivonal.hu, while men imagine their lives with a couple on average 11 years younger or up to 5 years older, women are looking for a partner 3 years younger and 8 years older. This can certainly be a source of confidence, as the two overlap, but the question arises as to whether desires come together when we look at different ages.

Although overall, men search for a wider age group and mostly want a younger partner, those under the age of 30 have a slightly different strategy, as they often have an extra 8 years in the search criteria. At the same time, it is also true that men are increasingly looking for a younger partner as they age, which can be linked to, among other things, later plans to start a family. While those aged 30-39 would imagine an average of 10, those in their 40s 13, those in their 50s 14, and those aged 60 and older would imagine 16 years younger.

Almost without exception, women prefer older matchmakers: this is mainly the case for those under 30 and those in their 30s, with the former setting an average of plus 12 years and the latter a maximum of 10 years in the search criteria. At the same time, those aged 60 and over want the same for a younger than for an older couple, marking a 5-year age difference in both directions.

The similarity is not clear in terms of education

In addition to age, education is also an aspect that couples are perhaps the first to consider if the goal is to find the real one. Nor can it necessarily be said in this respect that the principle of similarity is followed by singles, that is to say, they do not seek only their partner among those who have the same level of education as themselves.

Based on the data, it seems that the primary education partner is primarily interested in those with primary and secondary education, but the other matchmakers do not consider it to be an exclusionary factor if their education is such. A university degree is less divided between singles, most of them would like to meet a candidate with a higher education qualification. However, this is not primarily true for graduates, such a companion is even more attractive to singles with a high school degree.

Attraction cannot necessarily be measured solely in terms of education, although there is no doubt that in addition to age, this also influences mate choice.
