Similarly, the population of 55- to 64-year-olds doubled from 2013 (6%) to 2015 (12%).
All of the other American demographics either increased, yet at a smaller percentage, or remained the same; none decreased in their usage of online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
The two main take-aways from the studies are that online dating has become more socially prominent and, subsequently, more socially acceptable.For those 55 to 64-year-olds that use online dating, there has been a 6% increase from 2013 to 2015.For women, online dating statistics show that a woman's desirability online peaks at 21. In what will be no surprise to anyone on the dating scene today, a new report from Pew shows that "online," is increasingly the answer to that that age-old question "How did you two meet?" The study published Thursday from the Pew Research Center found that 15 percent of all Americans have used some form of online dating — up from the 11 percent in a Pew study conducted in 2013.
