I think as you get older you get more comfortable not going out, or at least that seems like the case when you’re in a long term relationship. But what about the singles? What’s their idea of a good time? Well increasingly dating couples are starting to come round to the idea that staying in and binge watching TV together with over 50% of each age group thinking that a movie marathon is a perfectly acceptable idea of a date.
The survey was conducted by 200 kiwi Elite Singles aged between 18 and 69. The survey picked their brains on what are the do’s and don’t of watching TV together. For example there are some TV shows that are a total turn off. 48% of kiwis believe that if their date liked watching Shortland Street then that’s a total turn off. This is followed by the zombie filled Walking Dead and Modern Family. Total turn offs, avoid these at all costs!

However there’s a flipside, Big Bang Theory & Game of Thrones is way up there in terms of being “attractive” TV shows. Crime fans will be happy to know NCIS is way up there on the list as well.
Interestingly, when picking their genre to watch with a date guys #2 is romance, at 23%. I guess they want to get the mood just right. Girls prefer to pick comedies fantasy, and thrillers.
But when you’re watching TV your mind can wander. And the dream date for guys on a TV night are Kaley Cuoco, Emilia Clarke and Antonia Prebble. Girls preferred cuddle partners are Kit Harrington (Of course!), Benedict Cumberbatch, and Robbie Magasiva.
