Eighty percent of people in the age group 31 and above feel inoculation as a prerequisite in their date. Likewise, the majority 70 percent of people in the age group 18-30 consider meeting their date only after getting the job and wouldn’t risk during the second wave. On the other hand, 30 percent of people age 18-30 wouldn’t necessarily consider vaccination and would take other safety precautions while meeting. In fact, the majority of people wouldn’t continue the conversation with the person who is vaccine-hesitant and would cut off the conversation smoothly. A very few of them would be ok to have a conversation with anti-vaccinators considering it as an individual choice.

Surprisingly, the majority 61 percent from smaller cities/towns, and 54 percent of people from top cities understand the risk of meeting and prefer their first date to be virtual over meeting in person.

Speaking about the survey report, Ravi Mittal, Founder, and CEO of Quack Quack said, “In addition to several effects of the second wave of Covid-19, it has had a significant impact on daters as well who are now more concerned than ever. Both males and females want their date to be vaccinated and would not risk their health during the second wave. Likewise, the survey report has many interesting insights,” he added. (IANS/AD)



Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.
