Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
The colors indicate the share of women who are not overweight compared to men of all weight categories in the 20 to 29 age group.
Green means a high number, while red indicates a low number. Some countries, like China and India, have a very noticeable shortage of women in the dating market.
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
