Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.
The popularity of online dating is being driven by several things but a major factor is time.
Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.
More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.
According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.
A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their online dating profile.
Women apparently lied more than men, with the most common dishonesties being about looks.
It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work.
And you neglected to mention that women lie about their age quite often, especially those over 40. I don't know if the relationships last, or why they don't. I go on a LOT of first dates and typically don have second dates... It detracts from your image when you let people advertise in the comments sections.
This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced.
According to research conducted at Michigan State University, relationships that start out online are 28% more likely to break down in their first year, than relationships where the couples first met face-to-face. Couples who met online are nearly 3 times as likely to get divorced as couples that met face-to-face. While the overwhelming majority of romantic relationships still begin offline, around 5% of Americans that are currently in either a committed relationship or marriage, suggest that they did in fact meet their significant other online.
