Facts for online dating
Only 33% of women who use online dating websites say they have sex on the first online dating encounter, and 60% of female Tinder users say they are looking for a match, not just a hookup.
Online dating is for everyone: the number of 18-24 year-olds who use the services nearly tripled from 2013 to 2015: from 10% to 27%.
Likewise, while only 6% of 55-64 year olds used the services in 2013, 12% use it today—that’s double the senior users. Statistics from Ok Cupid and Tinder show that black women and Asian men are the groups that potential daters avoid the most.
More than 40% of men said they lied about their jobs in an effort to sound more successful.
No wonder people lie on their dating profiles-friends are helping them build their profile.
But, at 26, women have more online pursuers than men whereas, at 48, men have twice as many online pursuers as women.
