Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
With an estimated 1,000 online dating sites in existence, however, it can be hard to sift through all the options and decide which is the best site.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
Creating online dating profiles helps consumers carefully consider potential matches.
Likewise, evaluating a dating site before using it is essential, and it will bring you that much closer to finding a good match.
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.
