My experience with internet dating
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.And 38% of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner have used online dating at one point or another.
And this is especially true for those at the upper end of the socio-economic spectrum: Even as online daters have largely positive opinions of the process, many have had negative experiences using online dating.
Some 42% of Americans know someone who has used online dating, up from 31% in 2005.
And 29% of Americans now know someone who met a spouse or other long-term partner through online dating, up from just 15% in 2005.
Additionally, 22% of online daters have asked someone to help them create or review their profile.
Women are around twice as likely as men to ask for assistance creating or perfecting their profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.
