In this day and age of modern technology and digital interactions, online dating has fast become one of the most popular ways for potential couples to chat online with the intention of finding love.
These young adults are now more likely than any other age group to use mobile dating apps.
Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.
A national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 10-July 12, 2015, among 2,001 adults, finds that: This growth has been especially pronounced for two groups who have historically not used online dating at particularly high levels – the youngest adults, as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
Despite this investment, the extent to which people can trust those they meet online remains to be seen.
Almost half (48 percent) of online daters have lied about themselves online, misrepresenting their weight (47 percent), physical appearance (50 percent) and interests (48 percent).
