Does online dating work for young people
In fact, 27% of young adults users now say they've used an online dating platform, up from 10% in early 2013.
This scenario is not just on Match.com, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites."Historically, people in their late teens and early 20s have not used online dating at particularly high rates — and the academic literature on this subject would say that young people don’t particularly need to use online dating in the first place, since they have lots of available options for people to date within their social circles," Aaron Smith, associate director of research at Pew Research Center, told ."The rapid growth we’ve seen in dating apps use speaks both to the changing nature of dating among younger folks today, and also the extent to which these apps are in many ways perfectly in line with the way that cohort interacts with the world." The study, which was conducted among 2,001 adults in the summer of 2015, suggests the growth is attributed to the increase in use of mobile dating apps.Because no matter how old you get, one thing about human nature never changes: nobody likes feeling lonely.Older adults, however, look for companionship in a way that’s very different from their younger counterparts.
