Millennials have a lot of things to complain about when it comes to their financial circumstances. Crushing student loan debt, the rising cost of living and the lack of well-paying jobs have made millennials into the most broke generation in contemporary history.
千禧一代在财务状况方面有诸多抱怨。沉重的学生贷款债务、不断上涨的生活成本和高薪工作的缺乏,使千禧一代成为当代历史上财务状况最糟糕的一代。
But new research showing that almost a third of millennials think dating is too expensive reveals Generation Me isn't just short on money — but commitment.
但最新调查显示,近三分之一的千禧一代认为约会太昂贵,这表明“我世代”不仅缺钱,还缺乏承诺。
Match.com's Singles in America survey found that about 30 percent of adults between the ages of 22 to 37 feel their financial instability is hampering their dating game. And 21 percent of the millennials think they don't even deserve love until they've reached a certain level of income, according to the study, which analyzed the dating habits of more than 5,000 US adults.
配对网站开展的美国单身人士调查发现,年龄在22岁至37岁之间的成年人中,约30%的人认为经济状况不稳定妨碍了约会。这项分析了5000多名美国成年人约会习惯的调查显示,21%的千禧一代认为,在达到一定收入水平之前,他们根本不配拥有爱情。
Match.com also found that 22% of singles say a potential partner's financial situation has held them back from pursuing a relationship with them.
这项调查还发现,22%的单身人士表示,潜在伴侣的财务状况使他们不敢与其恋爱。
The research showed that the majority (20.4 percent) of millennials have a household income that's just $15,000-$29,999.
调查显示,20.4%的美国千禧一代家庭年收入仅有1.5万至2.9999万美元(约合10.5万至21.2万元人民币)。

This information follows a separate study, also by Match.com, which said that the average single American spends about $60 per month on dating - but, unfortunately, it's still men who fork-out most of the costs.
配对网站另一项调查显示,美国单身人士平均每月用于约会的开销约为60美元,但大部分开销仍然由男方承担。

The new research also found that the #MeToo movement has caused more than half of all men to act differently with women - being more reserved and distant.
这项新调查还发现,“我也是”运动导致超过半数的男性改变了对女性的态度——更加保守和疏远。
It's not all bad news, though. Fifty-nine percent of participants admitted to falling in love with someone they didn't expect to.
