‘Coachella & Chill’ – Festival Season is Heating Up

It’s officially festival season, ladies and gentleman. This year, it would appear that singles are more than ready to welcome it with open arms.

The Coachella music festival kicks off this weekend (April 14th 2017) and our most recent Plenty of Fish survey has revealed this music festival is a hot spot for spring flings with men leading the charge!

Are we surprised? Not really!

Plenty of Fish surveyed over 1800 singles across the US between the ages of 18-40 and it turns out, after we broke the results down by gender, a whopping 84 percent of men are eager on a festival hookup, versus only 41 percent of women.

Would you ever hook up with someone at a music festival or concert?

Male Response: 

Would you ever hook up with someone at a music festival or concert?

Female Response: 

When asked whether they’d hooked up at a music festival or concert in the past, things were looking a little less spicy – with only 21 percent of men admitted to having done the deed vs a low 9 percent of women.

Nothing but Positive Vibes at Coachella 2017 

When Plenty of Fish asked singles ‘what going to Coachella says about someone’, singles described attendees as adventurous, trendy and having great musical taste. And while many singles are open to a weekend festival fling (70 percent of singles), it’s not how they perceive the attendees:

  • They’re adventurous (25.7%)
  • They’ve got great musical taste (22%)
  • They’re trendy (18.2%)
  • They try too hard (10.1%)
  • They’re a music snob (7.4%)
  • They’re too young for me (6.8%)
  • They’re looking to hook up (5.8)
  • They’re a showoff (3.9%)

It looks like festival season is off to a great start,  so now we’d like to ask all you eager concert goers this – Are you heading to Coachella this year for the music, adventure, or cheeky spring fling?!

Movember is Sexy, According to Single Women!

Men, around the world, are changing the face of men’s health this month by letting their facial hair run wild while raising awareness about the devastating effects of various cancers taking the lives of their fathers, sons and brothers. This annual event is called Movember!

Still wondering whether or not you should partake in this charitable act by growing a ‘stache’? It turns out, single women will think you’re sexier for it!

PlentyOfFish recently conducted a survey, and according to single heterosexual women 21+  from the US; 64% think charitable giving is very sexy!

If a man is participating in “Movember” (growing his mustache during the month of November, for charity) does it make him more attractive? 


20% of women also think a mustache makes a man more attractive. All the more reason to start growing your epic ‘Tom Selleck’ bristles. But seriously, can we take a moment and stare in awe at Tom’s mustache!


When we asked women what they like most about a mustache; a whopping 34% admitted ‘it makes him look more mature’ 26% said ‘it’s sexy’ and 22% said ‘its masculine’.


So there you have it; throw away your razor, purchase your beard oils and let that 5 o’clock shadow transform into the lumberjack beard you’ve always dreamed of.

If you’re wondering what costume will score you a date this Halloween, we have all the answers for you!

PlentyOfFish recently surveyed over 500 single users over the age of 21 in the United States, to uncover the top male and female costumes considered the most attractive by the opposite sex.

Here is what we found:

Batman is the sexiest costume according to single women!

It’s no surprise that a lot of men are dressing as The Joker (28%), but listen up guys; when we asked single ladies ‘what male costume is most attractive’ a whopping 26% of females chose Batman, beating out The Joker, who only received 14%.

The top three hottest costumes for men: 

  • Batman 26%
  • Netflix and Chill 16% 
  • Jon Snow from Game Of Thrones 14% 

We strongly suggest all single men steer clear of The Donald Costume and dress up as ANYTHING ELSE. Even the fictional anime character, Pikachu, was considered hotter than Trump! See for yourself below.

What costume would you be most attracted to at a Halloween party (Female Response):


Wonder Woman will capture the hearts of single men!

Most of you are on the right track, with 38% of single women dressing as the super hero. Well ladies, you will be happy to find out this costume is also considered the hottest by 33% of single men, beating out the popular member of Suicide Squad – Harley Quinn.

Top female costumes men will get googly eyes over: 

  • Wonder Woman – 34% 
  • Harley Quinn – 30% 
  • Netflix and Chill – 11% 

We highly recommend saving your best Hillary Clinton impersonation for another time, as only 1% of males are attracted to this presidential costume.
