Another day, another survey…

According to a recent poll, seventy-two percent of respondents said they still get butterflies when they see their partner, and three in four said that meeting their significant other was "love at first sight."

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Care.com, the study interviewed 2,000 parents of children ages 5 to 18 to better understand how they have kept their romance alive nearly two years into the pandemic. The results revealed that 78% of parents believe having regular date nights are vital in keeping the love train going.

On average, most couples have had seven date nights since the pandemic began and according to the poll, most parents said they are usually homebodies and prefer to stay at home either way (72%).

As for Valentine’s Day, most respondents view the holiday as somewhat romantic (82%), compared to 52% of their partners.

“Parents with children of all ages continue to be challenged by the pandemic,” said Sheri Reed, managing editor of Care.com. “After two years trying to keep their families healthy and functioning, many have had to put romance on the sidelines. Date nights, like Valentine’s Day, are great opportunities for parents to prioritize their relationship as a couple as well.”

Here’s what most people interviewed said was their idea of a perfect date night:

Movies – 47%

Dinner [TIED] – 46%

Talking [TIED] – 46%

Dancing – 44%

Relaxing – 42%
