But three in four singles is turned off if a date answers their phone without any explanation, and more than half are turned off by texting during the date."It’s sort of a mixed message because on one hand people judge potential sexual partners based on social media posts, but then they also want them to put (their phones) down," Anderson says.

"The intimate part is getting to know someone and going on a date.”And while 40% of singles have dated someone they met online, they don’t want technology to spill-over to the actual dates.

Prior to an actual date, 42% of singles said they judge a date by their social media posts.

“I think they are very career oriented, so sex before the first date could be a sex interview, where they want to know if they want to spend time with this person.”In many ways sex has become a less intimate part of dating, according to Kimberly Resnick Anderson, a certified sex therapist.

With dating and hookup apps making it easier than ever to hop in bed, now the intimate part can often times be introducing a partner to friends and family.“We used to think of sex as you crossed the line now you are in an intimate zone, but now sex is almost a given and it’s not the intimate part," Anderson said.

While the rule of thumb may have been wait to have sex until a third date, 34% of singles have had sex before a first date, and Millennials are 48% more likely to have sex before a first date than all other generations of singles, according to the annual Singles in America survey, funded by Dallas-based dating service Match and conducted by Research Now.

Millennials especially are unencumbered by fears that may have held people back from having sex in the past, says Helen Fisher a biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match, who helped develop the representative survey of more than 5,000 singles.“We have a real misunderstanding of Millennials,” she said.

On the contrast, there are a lower number of users in Idaho, where 60% of the population is married.

If you're worried joining an online dating site sends a message that you're just looking for sex, it doesn't.

Time to lose it, according to Fisher.“Singles don’t like people who have a cracked phone, or an old phone or those who use a clicking sound when typing,” she says, citing the survey.

“I think we will see more of these taboos as singles are leading the way in expressing new forms of politeness in the technological era.”Men and women may have come a long way in understanding each other, but the survey found the saying men are from Mars, women are Venus may still ring true.

More than 40% of men said they lied about their jobs in an effort to sound more successful.
