Finding Love is Easier When You Enlist Your Friends


Wingman, a new mobile matchmaking app, today announced results of the first Wingman Assisted Romance Survey from research conducted in the UK and the US earlier this year that suggests most millennials (90%)—whether they are single or in a relationship--say they would enjoy playing matchmaker for their friends. Indeed, almost seventy percent (70%) said they thought the matches they would make for their friends would be better than if their friends continued to pick their own dates.

“A large majority of the people we spoke to at length felt that they knew their friends well enough to pick people they should meet and many felt they absolutely knew them better than their friends know themselves,” said Wingman founder Tina Wilson. “Millennials tend to be confident and that confidence clearly extends to the widespread belief we found that many millennials are convinced they can be great matchmakers for their friends. Millennials also like a mission, and Wingman lets them do something selfless—think about what’s good for a friend—and they loved that option.”
