Site adult dating services

03 Feb

Some 41% of American adults say they know someone who uses online dating, while 29% indicate they know someone who has married or entered into a long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.

The site boasts 63 million users worldwide and claims more than 7 million British members.

A national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 10-July 12, 2015, among 2,001 adults, finds that: This growth has been especially pronounced for two groups who have historically not used online dating at particularly high levels – the youngest adults, as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who report having used online dating has nearly tripled in the last two years.

Young adults, ages 18 to 24, traditionally haven’t been big online daters.

They haven’t had much of a need because they are typically surrounded by other young, single people, whether at work or school, said Aaron Smith, associate research director with the Pew Research Center.
