Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.

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.

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.

More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.

According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.

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.

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.

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.

Despite the wealth of digital tools that allow people to search for potential partners, and even as one-in-ten Americans are now using one of the many online dating platforms, the vast majority of relationships still begin offline.
