Progressing online dating

When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.

Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.

About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.

Around 32 per cent of people agreed that “online dating keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date".

Sociologist Dr Kevin Lewis of the University of California told the USA Today newspaper that women must be careful with online dates.

It also said 11 per cent of people who started a long-term relationship in the past decade met their partner online.

However, some people think the Internet does not help with marriage.

Recognized by Charity Navigator and Forbes for its efficiency, Direct Relief equips health professionals in the U. and throughout the world with essential medical resources to effectively treat and care for patients – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.
