5% of All Couples in the U.S. Met Online . . . and Five More Stats on Online Dating


The Pew Internet and American Life Project just released the results of a massive new survey on online dating in the U.S.  Here are the six main things they found . . .
 
1.  11% of all adults in the country have used an online dating site or a dating app at some point.  And 66% of them have gone on a date with someone they met through the site or app.
 
2.  There's about a one-in-four chance online dating will work out.  23% of people who've done online dating have wound up finding their SPOUSE, or at least a long-term relationship.
 
3.  5% of ALL Americans who are currently married or in a long-term relationship met the person online.  
 
4.  The stigma around online dating is almost gone . . . but not completely.  21% of people said they agreed, quote, "people who use online dating sites are desperate."  That's down from 29% in 2005. 
 
5.  54% of online daters have gone out with someone who SERIOUSLY MISREPRESENTED themselves in their profile.
 
6.  29% of people have Google stalked a person before a date.  And 31% of people check Facebook to see how people they USED to date are doing.  (Pew Internet)
