Online dating services for active adults

The typical (median) online dating site user is 38 years old, while the typical (median) dating app user is 29 years old—nearly a decade younger.

In particular, many services now offer cell phone apps that allow users to update their profile, search the profiles of others, and find potential dates in their area using their mobile phone.Nonetheless, attitudes towards online dating have progressed in a clearly positive direction in the eight years since our previous study: Additionally, one-third of internet users (32%) agree with the statement that “online dating keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date.” This is the first time we have asked this question, and therefore we cannot determine how it has changed over time (if at all).Perhaps unsurprisingly, people who have used online dating themselves have positive views about the process compared with the overall population.Since 45% of all Americans are app users, that means that 3% of the overall adult population has used a cell phone dating app at one point or another.

Similarly, 6% of smartphone owners have used a mobile dating app.Seniors are again especially notable in this regard, as 20% of those 65 and older now know someone who has entered into a serious relationship with someone they met via online dating.
