A Pew online dating survey shows how far we've come from those days, with 11 percent of American adults — and 38% of those who are currently “single and looking” — saying they've used an online dating site or app.
While that may have not been the case 10 years ago, times have changed and using the Internet as a means of finding a prospective partner is no longer thought of as unusual.But not all sociable folks consider the use of Internet dating.If you have high self-esteem and consider romantic relationships to be an important part of your life, you’re more likely to use Internet dating.This is the first time Pew has polled Americans on dating in the digital era since 2005. These days, 5 percent of Americans who are currently married or in a long-term partnership met their partner somewhere online, and 11 percent of those who have been together for ten years or less did so.Online dating is most common among people in their mid-20’s through mid-40’s. More than 65 percent of online daters say they've gone on a date with someone they met through a site or app, and 23 percent met a spouse or long-term partner this way.
Also, I think if people haven't tried it they shouldn't be answering this question, because ignorant answers aren't very helpful for you.
