Success of online dating

Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.

Here's what they're lying about: 20% of women surveyed by global research agency Opinionmatters admitted to using an older photo from when they were younger and thinner.

Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.

Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.

Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.

But it still means that one-third of online daters have not yet met up in real life with someone they initially found on an online dating site.

One-in-five online daters have asked someone else to help them with their profile.

There are 40 million Americans using online dating websites and those users range from young to old.
