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.
I have the patience to find the right guy, online dating is for the impatient. I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but I do like messaging back and forth and having casual conversation with a guy because there’s no pressure if we both just want to have a little fun via txt. Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
I have a few dating apps (Grindr, Jackd, Scruff, etc)…and often I find that conversation can be fast and furious at the inception, but quickly dies off when anyone mentions meeting for a drink in person.
