Internet dating results
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.Since it’s become so popular to just sign up and browse through profiles, it might just be a tool and less of a catalyst guys are using to take advantage of meeting people.Nobody’s doing it right so I think we’re all in trial mode haha Exactly.When men get too serious about their profiles it’s also a bit overwhelming.Like I met a nice guy from e Harmony because his profile info seemed pretty basic but turns ou he was WAY more into the sports and “social drinking” than what he said online.I use a mobile app and it’s limited because well since the screen is so small so you have to really hit the best points to get someone’s attention.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
I have the patience to find the right guy, online dating is for the impatient. I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but I do like messaging back and forth and having casual conversation with a guy because there’s no pressure if we both just want to have a little fun via txt. Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
I have a few dating apps (Grindr, Jackd, Scruff, etc)…and often I find that conversation can be fast and furious at the inception, but quickly dies off when anyone mentions meeting for a drink in person.
