Dating users Free married bi men sex chat
For young adults in particular, this overall increase in online dating usage has been accompanied by a dramatic increase in the use of mobile dating apps.
Fully 22% of 18- to 24-year-olds now report using mobile dating apps, a more than fourfold increase from the 5% who reported using dating apps in 2013.
As was the case in previous Pew Research Center surveys of online dating, college graduates and the relatively affluent are especially likely to know people who use online dating or to know people who have entered into a relationship that began online.
Dating sites and apps were most popular among younger internet users - 30 percent of U. internet users aged 18 to 29 years were currently using dating sites or apps and a further 31 percent had done so previously.
Current online dating site users explained their reasons for using online dating sites or apps with answers that included finding someone for a long term relationship or even marriage and the chance to meet people who just want to have fun.
Nearly six-in-ten college graduates (58%) know someone who uses online dating, and nearly half (46%) know someone who has entered into a marriage or long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.
By comparison, just 25% of those with a high school diploma or less know someone who uses online dating – and just 18% know someone who has entered into a long-term relationship with someone they met this way.
