An actual dating site
I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
Here are five facts about online dating: Online dating has lost much of its stigma, and a majority of Americans now say online dating is a good way to meet people.
This page is an attempt by me to organize the vast majority of online dating related statistics and facts available on the Internet.
Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.
