ARE YOU HOLDING OUT OR SETTLING?

March 9, 2018


Should you hold out for your perfect soulmate . . . or is there a point where you should just settle for someone who's good enough?

Disney movies and romantic comedies . . . and to a lesser extent, "The Bachelor" . . . have trained us to believe that our PERFECT SOULMATE is out there.  But is there a point where you should just say, "I don't know if I'm gonna ever find my soulmate.  Maybe they don't even exist.  And I'm definitely not getting any younger.  So . . . um . . . will you marry me?"


According to a new survey, the majority of people say . . . no.  61% say you should hold out for The One.  Only 11% say you should settle for someone who's good enough.  Men are almost twice as likely as women to think just settling for someone is a good idea.  And maybe not surprisingly, people in their 50s are most likely to say you should settle . . . people in their 30s and 40s are second-most likely . . . and people in their 20s are least likely to say you should settle. 


So.....are you holding out...or settling?
