Dating 30 years older
English women looking for a caring genuine guy for long walks, traveling and a fun time.One in every ten American adults has used an online dating site or a mobile dating app.However, every major demographic group is now significantly more likely to respond in the affirmative to this question than was the case when we first asked it in 2005.Notably, Americans ages 65 and older are now twice as likely to know someone who uses online dating than they were in 2005 (24% of seniors now know an online dater, compared with 13% who did so eight years ago).
Since 45% of all Americans are app users, that means that 3% of the overall adult population has used a cell phone dating app at one point or another.
The median ages for online dating site users and dating app users are illustrative in highlighting the age differences between each group.
The typical (median) online dating site user is 38 years old, while the typical (median) dating app user is 29 years old—nearly a decade younger.
The college-educated and those in their mid-twenties through mid-forties are especially likely to use online dating sites.
As we did in our previous study, we presented online dating site users with an open-ended follow-up question asking which particular dating site(s) they have used.
