This page is an attempt by me to organize the vast majority of online dating related statistics and facts available on the Internet.Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.Should they look elsewhere, asking friends to set them up or striking up conversation at a bar instead of going online?How does Tinder really compare to people who meet the old-fashioned way – in real life?
The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
At the present moment, there are now around 3 million registered users who are active on the website every day. That is a lot when you think about it, and is certainly a good reason to give it a go.
Just as the site’s name suggests, it may be a good idea to see if there really are plenty of fish.
While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.
The data has been gathered from such sources as blogs, online newspaper and magazine articles, company financial statements, company advertising information packages, the actual dating service website, and multiple website measurement services.
