The world of dating in 2015

You don’t get anywhere if you don’t ask – and we asked more than 11,000 people in cities all over the world* about how dating goes down in their town…


* Time Out editions in 24 cities participated in our global dating survey, and we received responses from many more locations around the world. Data were compared between the 12 cities from which the largest responses were received: London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo and Beijing. Some results were produced from a global analysis of the data.

Survey written and edited by Chris Bourn. Illustrations by Ryan Chapman. Design by Anthony Huggins. French translation by Elsa Pereira. Additional research by: Sean Whittington Roy, Guy Withers, Charly Lester, Ellen Hardy, Karen d'Arcangelo, Guy Parsons, Alex Dudok de Wit, Flo Wales Bonner.
