Five Statistical Facts About Online Dating

  • Most virtual daters report a pleasurable experience

Almost a third of those signing up to dating outlets have stated their impression of the service they were provided with left them feeling hopeful, compared to 45% who reported less favorably.

  • The majority of site users say finding a partner is easy

A survey of American adults and their dating habits discovered that 43% of those questioned stated it was ‘somewhat easy’ to come across another single they were physically attracted to. The reasons for this are fairly obvious. These outlets have become so popular that you are bound to come across a sizeable cross-section of attractive individuals once you begin browsing through all the profiles.

The advent of a swiping function on some apps or sites has made this type of instant decision-making even more pronounced. The convenience of having so much choice at their disposal means site users don’t have to hang around, either. The moment they get the impression the person at the other end isn’t meant for them, they can simply move on.

  • Females generally prefer more information

Statistical surveys commonly reveal that female site users tend to expect profiles of potential partners to contain maximum information. Almost three-quarters of those questioned expect to see a profile photo to accompany the details of the singles they are interested in getting to know better. This might be seen as a bit of a ‘no brainer,’ as who would want to interact with someone and send flirty messages without having the faintest idea what they looked like?

  • Younger women have described coming across ‘nuisances’

Here are some unfortunate statistics arising from recent surveys. Females were much likelier to report negative experiences at the hands of other site users. Just over a third reported male singles continuing to send messages long after they might have told that person they weren’t interested.
