A survey done for the dating website Match.com shows most singles have a pretty good idea of what they are looking for when they date.

Among the findings:

 38% would cancel a date because of something they found while doing Internet research on their date.

42% would not date a virgin.

 65% would not date someone with credit card debt greater than $5,000; 54% would not date someone with substantial student loan debt.

49% would consider getting into a committed relationship with someone who lived at home with parents.

Women say they want “respect” and men want someone to “trust”. Both men and women give high marks to “sense of humor”.

What are your “must haves”?
