It could be time to trade that trashy torso pic in for a tuxedo photo in your Jack’d profile, because you may be chatting with your future husband.
A newly released study of 18-30 year old Jack’d users in the U.K. had some surprising findings about the attitude toward marriage in the younger and older sections of the group:
- 62% of gay men aged 18-25 would be open to being married to another man.
- 45% of gay men 26 and older saw the real potential for marriage in their future.
- 68% of respondents claim that they would be open to marrying a guy they met on Jack’d.
- 60% of respondents wanted to wait until their 30’s to get married.
We’re definitely a bit depressed at 26 and above representing the “older” portion of the group, but happy that the gays see these apps as more than an opportunity to get Jack’d (or more) by a random guy. If that wasn’t enough to warm your ice cold heart, check out this anonymous quote from the survey:
“Marriage is marriage. It’s about two people who love each other promising to live and be faithful and loyal to each other for the rest of their lives. It’s about wanting that person in your life everyday, in your bed every night and in your heart forever.”
Awwwwww, the feels.
If someone who writes that is on the other side of a Jack’d profile, there just may be hope for the app enthusiasts yet.
