Internet dating success percentages
people who are currently single and looking or have been in their current relationship for less than 10 years) have looked for information about someone they were currently dating or about to meet for a first date.
27% of all social networking site users said they had unfriended or blocked someone who was flirting in a way that made them feel uncomfortable.
More than half (59%) of Pew’s respondents said they now agree with the statement that “online dating is a good way to meet people,” compared to 44% in 2005.
Though 21% of respondents said they think people who use online dating sites are “desperate,” that’s a decrease from the 29% who agreed with the statement eight years ago.
Some of the naysayers, however, are the same people logged onto online sites and apps.
About one in 10 of online daters said they think dating site users are “desperate” (though the survey didn’t indicate if they were referring to themselves or just their lackluster prospects on those sites).
