The two-day online audience analysis saw 14,000 participants, primarily from Tier 1 and 2 cities.

QuackQuack's Founder and CEO, Ravi Mittal, commented, "We are very close to bagging 30 Million users, and there couldn't be a better time to get a clearer picture of the current
QuackQuack's survey indicated a rise in the trend of niche dating. 44% of daters, male and female, remarked it is more effective to find tailored matches based on their specific interests, lifestyles, or communities. The traditional way of online dating, the "trial and error method," as the GenZ daters called it, takes more time and effort; the chances of error can take an emotional toll, too. Niche dating focuses on compatibility beyond the surface level. For instance, an avid reader would scope through profiles and find one that mentions reading or anything that indicates a potential match's love for reading, and based on this shared interest, connect. These individuals mentioned that a dog-lover would not have to date a cat-lover and fight about what's better, or a movie buff does not have to explain how it is the best form of media to their match; people can shift their focus from explanations to what's more important, building a connection.

Interestingly, 23% of male users below the age of 28 find the suggestions on profile improvement, such as strategically mentioning details in the BIO section and crafting an effective first message, to be the most beneficial aspect of this feature. Whereas 21% of female users appreciate the safety tips provided by the feature, considering them as the most valuable component. This diversity in user preferences showcases the app's ability to cater to a wide range of needs.
According to the survey results, more than 13% of men and 8% of women use AI tools to craft the perfect first message or even respond to their match to impress them with wit and humor. It has refined the way people communicate. While 21% of daters find it harmless, the vast majority think AI-generated responses take away from the authenticity of the interaction. The wit used to impress a match is not their own, says the individuals against it. You will be evaluating your match based on how they speak, but the voice is not quite their own. Delving deeper into the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI in fostering relationships, these daters think such a practice can corrupt genuine intimacy.
