Today 27% of these young adults report that they have done so, up from just 10% in early 2013.Meanwhile, the share of 55- to 64-year-olds who use online dating has doubled over the same time period (from 6% in 2013 to 12% in 2015).The P-Stats Network is known to support all major Battlefield games with their own project websites. Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.These young adults are now more likely than any other age group to use mobile dating apps.Although 15% of Americans have used online dating themselves, a larger share report that they are familiar with online dating from the experiences of people they know.Some 53% of women who have used online dating agree that it is more dangerous than other ways of meeting people, substantially higher than the 38% of male online daters who agree with this statement.
