Fully 22% of 18- to 24-year-olds now report using mobile dating apps, a more than fourfold increase from the 5% who reported using dating apps in 2013.
These young adults are now more likely than any other age group to use mobile dating apps.
Bumble is a dating app that only allows women to initiate contact in opposite-sex connections; in same-sex connections either party may initiate contact. Since 2012, Tinder has been matching singles based on their social profiles and geographic location. Both users must “swipe right” before being matched and are then able to chat within the app.
Some 41% of American adults say they know someone who uses online dating, while 29% indicate they know someone who has married or entered into a long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating."January 1st can signify a new start, so this year in particular we may see more singles than ever getting head starts on their resolutions. Dating apps and sites are easy and efficient, and you can literally be swiping one minute and on a date IRL a few minutes later.With many people ready to recommit themselves to finding someone special after the holidays, it's a great time to be looking for love."Sound familiar?
