Internet dating research

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.

When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.

Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.

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.

Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.

Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.

To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.

The internet, cell phones and social media have become key actors in the lives of many American couples.

Technology is a source of support and communication as well as tension, and couples say it has both good and bad impacts on their relationships.
