Online dating in america
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.
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.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
But it still means that one-third of online daters have not yet met up in real life with someone they initially found on an online dating site.
