Zoosk.com , a romantic social network, conducted a survey with more than 4,000 of its members in the U.S. to gather their thoughts about December 21st. Members were questioned if they are preparing for it and how the idea of the end of the world would affect their plans.
“With all the coverage about the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar, we thought it would be fascinating to ask people about the choices they would make in the face of Armageddon,” said Alex Mehr, co-founder and co-CEO of Zoosk.
