Pew research online dating

Pew’s statistics have been used, alternately, to prove that It’d be easy to blame the irrepressible creativity of insta-pundits.But the truth is likely buried deeper in Pew’s online dating statistics.Though only one in three “single and looking” adults use dating websites, half have used the Internet to flirt.Functionally, I’d say the difference between meeting a man on and meeting him at a party then aggressively stalking his social-media profiles before tracking down his e-mail address to request a date is pretty minor.Though most adults have never used a dating website, 30 percent of those who dated sometime in the last decade admit to using social media to research potential dates.One in five have asked someone on a first date online.

That makes them a prime target market for dating sites, and with good reason.

Pew’s survey finds one in six Americans have dumped someone by text, e-mail, or “other online message.” Though I shudder at the thought of, say, a Snap Chat breakup, I don’t doubt that it’s been done.

More baby boomers are clicking their way to true love.

“There’s been a real reduction in the stigma attached to online dating over the last decade or so, and that’s particularly true of older users,” adds Aaron Smith, associate director of Internet research at Pew.

“They’re much more likely to respond positively in general to online dating and the people who use it.” There’s also been an anecdotal increase in his research of those who know someone who has met a partner through online dating, Smith says.
