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.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
But when they die, a clock starts ticking, which is the radioactive decay of the C-14.
The clock begins at death because no more C-14 is coming in.
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.
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone.
Many online daters enlist their friends in an effort to put their best digital foot forward.
Some 22% of online daters have asked someone to help them create or review their profile.
Nearly anyone can verify this for themselves using basic multiplication and division.
