Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.A national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 10-July 12, 2015, among 2,001 adults, finds that: This growth has been especially pronounced for two groups who have historically not used online dating at particularly high levels – the youngest adults, as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who report having used online dating has nearly tripled in the last two years.Today 27% of these young adults report that they have done so, up from just 10% in early 2013.I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.If you have any questions or wish to include some information please contact us.

Some 41% of American adults say they know someone who uses online dating, while 29% indicate they know someone who has married or entered into a long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.
