Methodology behind the “Long-lasting Love Score”

The researchers analyzed ten globally popular dating shows, both with local editions and ongoing seasons.

 Data was collected from reputable sources such as Screenrant, Wikipedia, BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, US Magazine, and other media outlets. The information included:  

  • The total number of contestants 
  • The number of potential and actual couples formed 
  • The number of couples still together in 2023* 
  • The number of engagements and marriages resulting from the shows

The researchers calculated the percentage of couples formed, those still together in 2023, and overall success rates. Factors like the number of seasons were weighted to determine a final “long-lasting love score.”
