Internet dating demographics
Although online dating was greeting with skepticism when it was first introduced, the general attitudes toward the concept have changed – especially now that social networking sites like Facebook have such a prominent position in the lives of people.The demands of modern life keep everyone busier than ever before.
While 22% of young adults said they've accessed a mobile dating app, up from just 5% in 2013, college-aged users aren't the only ones actively browsing the Internet for dates.
If men are lying about their height with their online profile, then won’t a date notice this fact if they two meet in person?
And if a woman is lying about her body build, isn’t this going to be noticed as well?
In fact, 27% of young adults users now say they've used an online dating platform, up from 10% in early 2013.
Overall, about 15% of Americans have, at one point, used an online dating site.
