You’re scrolling through your Facebook and Instagram feed and what do you see? Photo after photo of your friend’s new boyfriend, your sister’s kids and engagement statuses from those high school sweethearts you grew up with. You roll your eyes and move on but you might also catch yourself wondering why you’re single, and when you’re going to find your match.

The good news is: there are a lot of single people in America. In 2015, 50% of the U.S. population consisted of single adults, which has increased from 48% in 2011.

But how are your friends finding relationships beyond a Netflix subscription? Maybe they met their significant other online. As more people are becoming comfortable using online dating sites, it’s quite possible your chances of finding your match are only a few clicks away.

There are 40 million Americans using online dating websites and those users range from young to old. Today, 27% of young adults report using online dating sites, which is up 10% from 2013, likely due to the influx of dating apps on smartphones. For those 55 to 64-year-olds that use dating sites over 50 to 60, there has been a 6% increase from 2013 to 2015.

Men make up 52.4 % of online dating users compared to 47.6% who are women. However these online dating statistics can change based on the site being used and location.

Online dating websites are great to meet a future wife, girlfriend, boyfriend etc.

You can certainly find even more people online through a dating website than you could just going out to places such as a bar etc to find someone.

Plentyoffish etc are a few good dating websites to use.

Yes, the statistics are not the best. But I am sure that this does not stop single people from looking for their soulmate. They say that the second marriage is often better than the first because people learn from their mistakes. I know several couples who have found each other through adult dating. This way of acquaintance is almost ideal in our conditions.

Very interesting statistics, thanks. My daughter started dating a basketall player who has quite a big potential to become a world-known super star. I needed to read to soothe my feelings and convince myself that dating a celebrity is not a bad thing.

I can't disagree with that, I'm also a guy and I'm also interested in casual online dating without commitment or problems. And it's actually not that difficult to find this type of relationship, for this you just need to find a reliable dating platform. For example, I take advantage of this dating site with texas hookups . I like the fact that this site has special chat rooms for flirting, in addition, this site can offer you tips if you are new to online dating.
