Top 10 adult dating sites
According to a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center, people who had used online dating services had a higher opinion of such services than those who had not.
80% of the users said that online dating sites are a good way to meet potential partners, compared to 55% of non-users.
In addition, online daters felt that online dating is easier more efficient than other methods (61%), and gives access to a larger pool of potential partners (62%), compared to 44% and 50% of non-users, respectively.
Meanwhile, 60% of non-users thought that online dating was a more dangerous way of meeting people and 24% deemed people who dated online were desperate, compared to 45% and 16% of online daters, respectively.
It is possible that the mode of online dating resonates with some participants' conceptual orientation towards the process of finding a romantic partner.
Although only a negligible number of people dated online in 2005, that rose to 11% in 2013 and then 15% in 2015.In particular, the number of American adults who had used an online dating site went from 9% in 2013 to 12% in 2015 while those who used an online dating software application on their mobile phones jumped from 3% to 9% during the same period.This increase was driven mainly by people aged 18 to 24, for whom usage almost tripled.Most services offer digital messaging, while others provide additional services such as webcasts, online chat, telephone chat (VOIP), and message boards.
Members can constrain their interactions to the online space, or they can arrange a date to meet in person.
At the same time, usage among those between the ages of 55 and 64 doubled.
