Pew study online dating Free and no registering no login adult web chat
) Taken overall, a full 15 per cent of American adults have used online dating sites and/or mobile dating apps, up from 11 per cent who reported doing so in early 2013. Pew also notes a spike in usage among 55- to 64-year-olds, with digital dating rates doubled from six per cent two years ago to 12 per cent now.
The most marked jump in digital dating tracked by Pew is among Americans aged 18 to 24 years old.
And again for the youngest adults the growth in dating app usage is the most pronounced with a full fifth (22 per cent) of 18- to 24-year-olds now reporting using mobile dating apps — a more than fourfold increase from the 5 per cent who reported using dating apps back in 2013. So what do online daters think of all these digital dating tools just a thumb swipe away?
In a separate question, 6% of online daters say that dating websites do an “excellent” job of protecting people’s personal information, while 32% say they do a “good” job.
Another 33% rate the services as “fair” and 12% say the websites do a “poor” job of protecting their information.
And unsurprisingly more women than men have concerns about personal safety and online dating, with a majority (53 per cent) of women who have used online dating agree it is more dangerous than other ways of meeting people vs 38 per cent of male online daters who agree with the statement.
