In fact, there was only one place where responses differed among genders.
More than half of the women surveyed said that online dating was a more dangerous way to meet people than other approaches.
Healthy majorities also agree that online dating is easier, more efficient, and helps people find better matches.
(Which makes me wonder how much the idea of some matches being algorithmically better than others has been sold by online-dating companies.)Almost 30 percent of Americans know a long-term relationship which sprang from online dating; about 40 percent of them know someone who uses it.
Larger dating service businesses traditionally offer dating get-togethers using the same setting, in the same geographic location and market to the same age groups like 21-27, 28-35, 36-45, 46-59 and 60 and up.
And of college-educated Americans, and also Americans who make more than ,000 per year, knew someone who used a dating site or app: These were the only two majorities recorded for this part of the section.
(That said, college graduates don’t use dating services at more than an average rate.)What made millennial adoption of online dating grow so much?
That’s the most interesting result from a Pew Research Center survey released Thursday on Americans’ online-dating habits.
Conducted early last summer, the poll found that use of the services has grown modestly since 2013.
