More Women are Willing to Cancel a Date Due to Professional Commitment According to New It's Just Lunch Survey

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Men and women are shifting gender roles in yet another aspect of modern life, according to a new survey by It's Just Lunch. When the specialty dating service asked more than 4300 singles a series of questions regarding how they view dating issues related to work, there were two unexpected responses by each gender.

The most surprising were the answers to "How often do you cancel on a date due to work related issues?" The first choice answer for 50% of the men was "I always make time for dates."  Only 36% of the women selected this answer. The number one choice for women (41%) was "Work and dating hold near equal importance in my life and I make time for both."

Dr. Paulette Kouffman Sherman, a psychologist who specializes in single career women and the author of When Mars Women Date isn't surprised that women are more likely to reschedule a date. She says "Women still feel they have to work harder to succeed in corporate America."

Another unexpected difference between the sexes showed up in the answers to a question about business talk: "Do you enjoy talking about business and work-related topics during dates, or prefer to shift the conversation to other topics, issues or current events?" The top answer for women (45%) was "I talk about business to kick start a conversation, but enjoy talking about other things, too." Only 30% of the men selected this choice.
