One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone.
Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
Despite the wealth of digital tools that allow people to search for potential partners, and even as one-in-ten Americans are now using one of the many online dating platforms, the vast majority of relationships still begin offline.
Even among Americans who have been with their spouse or partner for five years or less, fully 88% say that they met their partner offline–without the help of a dating site.
 “Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, motherhood without marriage has settled deeply into middle America.
The fastest growth in the last two decades has occurred among white women in their 20s who have some college education but no four-year degree.
Of millennial moms who have babies outside of marriage, 67% have some college education, and 32% have four or more years of higher education.
Among high school graduates, depicted in the chart below, for instance, 28 percent of children were born to cohabiting couples.
Combine that with the 41 percent of children born to married couples, then most babies were born into two-parent households.
Women are especially likely to enlist a friend in helping them craft the perfect profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.
5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
