Maybe romantic Disney fairy tales come true after all.
Data from the popular global online dating site Plenty of Fish reveals that singles who have expressed an interest in Disney are 3.6 times more likely to leave the app in a relationship compared to singles who more generally list interests in music and movies.

That was certainly true for Disney fan Abby Schiller. After listing Disney as a hobby in her POF user profile in 2016, she met her eventual Prince Charming Miguel Morrobel, who contacted her because of their mutual love of Mickey and Co.
The couple had their first date at Disneyland, and two years later he proposed to Abby in front of Cinderella’s castle. Now married, they live in Winter Haven, Fla.

“I’m definitely not shy, but I was a busy, single mom, so bar hopping and lots of nights out wasn’t an option nor was it wanted,” Abby explained. “I couldn’t have picked someone I’m more compatible with though.”
POF uncovered the Disney love connection after analyzing more than 7 million user profiles.
Part of the Match Group, POF has 150 million registered users worldwide and claims 2.5 million conversations daily, which the company says are more than any other dating app.
Data shows that women interested in Disney are 25 percent more likely to receive messages on POF compared to females who list more common interests. Eleven percent of men who are into Disney saw a similar result.
Keep in mind while there’s got to be someone out there totally waiting for the one they love to find them, there’s no guarantee that POF’s pixie dust will spark romance in your life.
After all, Disney has its share of villains, too.
