Dating cool people
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.

Once upon a time, in an age before the Internet, the only way to meet people was to leave your apartment and interact with humanity.

Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
