Would you friend request before a first date?

A new survey finds that one-in-four people say they send a friend-request online before a first date with someone. Mashable surveyed three-thousand participants on what they found acceptable and polite in regard to dating in the digital age.  The survey found that 37.1-percent of singles will check their phone if their date leaves the room, while 38.6-percent of people in committed relationships and 33.4-percent of married people said the same.

Also, 26.6-percent of people surveyed said it’s ok to friend request someone before the first date, while 26.9-percent said “after multiple dates.” Of those surveyed who were college-age, 38.8% said friend requesting was acceptable before the first date, while just 26.2-percent of 20-somethings said the same, and just 16.4-percent of those in their 30s agreed.
