The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.

To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
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.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
Despite the wealth of digital tools that allow people to search for potential partners, and even as one-in-ten Americans are now using one of the many online dating platforms, the vast majority of relationships still begin offline.
