While dating has changed irreversibly with the advent of new technology, it seems a few stereotypes live on.
A survey of 800 singletons looking for love revealed that it pays to be attentive, and avoid pushing too hard, if you want that first date to blossom into something more.
Checking your phone constantly is the worst thing a woman can do on a first date, according to a survey of 800 Kiwis by dating website Find Someone.
On the flipside, more than half of women found a man suggesting sex on the first date a big no-no.
Members came from all over New Zealand, but were also found in greater numbers in the bigger cities.
If you spy a profile full of spelling mistakes, it doesn’t seem very ‘Kiwi’, or it looks like it’s been copied from somewhere else, it could be a scammer.
You have to be physically based in New Zealand to use our site.

Daniel Bridges, the head of Trade Me satellite site Find Someone, said they had members all over the country.
This is always a scam and you will never see that money again.
If you do send money, the scammer will probably ask you for more.
Most of Find Someone's members lived in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, although online dating was also "a great option for people who live in remote places".
The average age of a user on the site was late-30s, but the range was from 18 through to people in their late 60s.
Women rated the importance of a date's finances higher than the men surveyed.
For men, a sexual spark rated higher on their checklist, and nursing was the most attractive occupation.
