How many people get married from online dating
Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
“Furthermore the breakup rates for both marital and non-marital romantic relationship were found to be higher for couples who met online that couples who met through offline venues.” The findings contradict a report from the University of Chicago which suggested that online relationships were stronger.
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.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
These are among the key findings of a national survey of dating and relationships in the digital era, the first dedicated study of this subject by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project since 2005.
