In the contents below you will find them divided up accordingly. This is an ongoing project that I plan to add to regularly.
If you have any questions or wish to include some information please contact us.
I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.
The first which starts on this page will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
You can do almost anything online these days: Check a bank balance, buy shoes, choose a mattress, order a cab.
The second part is for actual dating services (this includes dating sites and dating apps).
According to a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center, 15 percent of American adults have used online dating sites (web-based platforms like Match.com) and/or dating apps (location-based smartphone apps like Tinder).
Participation by those 18 to 24 has almost tripled since 2013, and boomer enrollment has doubled.
“It was—unbelievably—not a crazy experience.” Online dating has certainly lost its lonely-hearts stigma.
Just look at how many people seeking dates or mates are flocking to matchmaking sites and apps.
