How to use dating websites

Although 15% of Americans have used online dating themselves, a larger share report that they are familiar with online dating from the experiences of people they know.

The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.

Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.

About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
