For centuries it’s been the custom for men to make the first move if they’re interested in a woman, but how many men wish that women would take the initiative occasionally? Spanish men are in luck, because research from our millions of users shows that women in Spain are more likely than any others to initiate contact. America, not so much…
We analysed over 90 million Badoo user interactions over a one month period, in more than 240 countries, to discover how often women made the first move. While men are still far more likely to make first contact than women in all countries, some women are more likely than others to start a conversation with a guy.
The following chart shows, on average, the number of men that women in each country initiated a conversation with on Badoo over the test period.
So, the average Spanish woman on Badoo makes the first move with 1.33 men per month, while women in Ecuador only start a conversation with 0.62 per month. It turns out that American women aren’t that interested in making the first move either, although their Canadian counterparts are a little friendlier!
