Looking separately at the two distinct elements that make up definition of an online dater, some 11% of internet users say that they have used an online dating site.
Among those who use cell phone apps, 7% say that they have specifically used a dating app on their phone.
Some 42% of Americans now know someone who has used an online dating site or app, up from 31% in 2005.
And twice as many people now know someone who has entered into a marriage or long-term relationship after meeting through an online dating site or app—29% of Americans now know someone who met their partner this way, compared with just 15% in 2005.
Nonetheless, attitudes towards online dating have progressed in a clearly positive direction in the eight years since our previous study: Additionally, one-third of internet users (32%) agree with the statement that “online dating keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date.” This is the first time we have asked this question, and therefore we cannot determine how it has changed over time (if at all).
Perhaps unsurprisingly, people who have used online dating themselves have positive views about the process compared with the overall population.
