These are among the key findings of a national survey of dating and relationships in the digital era, the first dedicated study of this subject by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project since 2005.One in every ten American adults has used an online dating site or a mobile dating app.Even today, online dating is not universally seen as a positive activity—a significant minority of the public views online dating skeptically.
Welcome to the number one Arab singles and dating community geared towards Arab men and women!
Arab Lounge is currently the largest online Christian and Muslim dating service for Arabs.
Yet even some online daters view the process itself and the individuals they encounter on these sites somewhat negatively.
Around one in ten online daters (13%) agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate,” and 29% agree that online dating “keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date.” Familiarity with online dating through usage by friends or family members has increased dramatically since our last survey of online dating in 2005.
Compared with eight years ago, online daters in 2013 are more likely to actually go out on dates with the people they meet on these sites.
Some 66% of online daters have gone on a date with someone they met through an online dating site or app, up from 43% of online daters who had done so when we first asked this question in 2005.
One in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app themselves, and many people now know someone else who uses online dating or who has found a spouse or long-term partner via online dating.
General public attitudes towards online dating have become much more positive in recent years, and social networking sites are now playing a prominent role when it comes to navigating and documenting romantic relationships.
This site also offers Muslim matrimonial and Arab matchmaking for Arab guys and girls for marriage, Instant Messenger of single Muslim and Arab Christian singles, and much more.
Remember that at this Arab dating site you can always search for your Christian or your single Muslim soul mate in safety thanks to our 5-Star Safety Program.
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
