According to a survey by the Its Just Lunch dating service, 43 percent of singles do a Google search on their prospective partner before the actual date.
Amazingly, 88 percent of respondents arent offended, figuring theyd do the same thing.
Technology plays a role in other aspects of dating. About 16 percent of singles have asked someone out on a date via Instant Messenger and 11 percent have done it by text message.
However, 77 percent of men admit theyd rather ask a date out the old-fashioned way by phone but 27 percent prefer using e-mail to tell the person theyre not interested in a second date.
