New dating sites in us 2016


Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

Here are five facts about online dating: Online dating has lost much of its stigma, and a majority of Americans now say online dating is a good way to meet people.

When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.

While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.

Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps too (hitting almost 50 million users back in late 2014), meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.

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.
