Online dating photos
Around one in ten online daters (13%) agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate,” and 29% agree that online dating “keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date.” Familiarity with online dating through usage by friends or family members has increased dramatically since our last survey of online dating in 2005.
Some 42% of Americans know someone who has used online dating, up from 31% in 2005.
We are a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA) which was set up to ensure high standards of behaviour by dating service providers serving the UK.
That is statistically similar to the 17% of online daters who said that this had happened to them when we first asked this question in 2005.
