Internet dating survey on line dating sites in

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.

One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.Accordingly, they are 3.4 times more likely to date a single father than childless women are.

In contrast, single moms are half as likely to date childless men as women with no children are.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.One-in-five online daters have asked someone else to help them with their profile.And Does this mean you should post photos of your children in your online dating profile?As an online dating expert and dating coach, I'm not a fan of having your children appear as your primary profile photo, but believe it's important to state within the text portion of your profile that you're proud of your children (and list their ages).Julie and her team create Irresistible Profiles for singles on the dating scene.
