Postcard Surveys and Stories

Postcards Postcrossing

In the past I’ve used Postcrossing.com  to swap postcards with random people all over the world, just for fun. Now I’m using it to find out a little more about the dating culture around the world.

On the incoming postcards, I’ve requested that the senders share anything they want about dating.

On the outgoing postcards I’m conducting a very short survey:


  1. In your culture, how old is too old to be single…
    1. for a female?
    2. for a male?
  2. In your culture, how young is too young to get married…
    1. for a female?
    2. for a male?
  3. Do/did your parents put pressure on you to get married?
    1. Yes, a lot
    2. Yes, but not too much
    3. No

I sent out a small batch of postcards not too long ago and the responses are slowly trickling in. It’ll take awhile until I’ve had enough survey responses to share the results, but I’ll share any dating stories as they come in.

I’m excited to see how this turns out! Do any of you readers have ideas for questions about the dating culture in other countries?
