Performed by the Badoo, the world's largest network to meet new people, the survey examined 147 millions of online interactions and the index of female responses in more than 100 countries.

In addition to revealing the leadership of South America in the ranking by continent, It turned out that the women of Lima, capital of Peru, are the ones least respond to male online initiatives around the world.

The survey was conducted in 100 countries with more users of the Badoo, and aimed to analyse in what place men have more difficulty getting Womens responses to call them to speak in a social network. The South not only stayed in first place in the world rankings, as also occupy three of the top five places, with Peru (1o), Ecuador (4o) and Venezuela the5o). The Uruguay stayed in 11th place, while Brazil was the 14th.

“The Americas are among the most addressed by men on Badoo”, said Louise Thompson, Public Relations Director of Badoo, a social network of chat, flirting and dating. “Why, can be more demanding and choose when and who respond”.

Another way to interpret the data is that the men from South America need to improve the way they address women online. “Rather than just say Hello ‘ ’”, suggests Thompson, “the best way to start a chat can be talk about common interests, as music, movies or sports”.

No matter how much the world has changed, says Thompson, men are still more likely than women in time to take the initiative in the online environment. “We wanted to find out which places women are more likely to respond and talk when they receive a masculine approach online”.

In South American rankings, On the other hand, the women of Paraguay were the most predisposed to respond to male contact, followed by Chile, argentinas e brasileiras.

The researchers of Badoo divided the world into nine major regions, as for example South America, Central America, North America and Europe. Ended up discovering that the South is least respond to male approaches on the internet, followed by the United States, American and European Central.
