One in every ten American adults has used an online dating site or a mobile dating app.
We refer to these individuals throughout this report as “online daters,” and we define them in the following way: Taken together, 11% of all American adults have done one or both of these activities and are classified as “online daters.” In terms of demographics, online dating is most common among Americans in their mid-20’s through mid-40’s.
According to statistics, one third of all married couples in the US met online. POF was among the first online dating sites and as such, they have been able to refine the site to up user experience. Like POF, the site is free with added features for premium members (otherwise referred to as A-list members).
The amount of users should not bother you as all you are trying is to find one mate.

Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.
I checked the website Eater for its Heat Map, which includes new, tasty restaurants in the city. The stunning fact remained: it was quicker for my dad to find a wife than it is for me to decide where to eat dinner.Believe me, it’s a much better strategy than scheduling a coffee date and finding you have little or nothing in common. I asked my dad about this experience, and here’s how he described it: he told his parents he was ready to get married, so his family arranged meetings with three neighboring families. That’s how my dad decided on the person with whom he was going to spend the rest of his life.If you can fit the bill, however, the site gives you awesome features.The best thing about this site is that it shows you what other users are looking for and the strategies they are applying to get it.
