A couple of months ago, I was sitting at a bar minding my own business when the woman next to me did something strange.
Surrounded by potential partners, she pulled out her phone, hid it coyly beneath the counter, and opened the online dating app Tinder.
With this growing industry comes a lot of information that’s worth knowing.
We’ve compiled a list of 21 good, bad, and just plain weird statistics on online dating that will blow your mind.
The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
The second are will be for actual dating services and be divided accordingly.
The data has been gathered from such sources as blogs, online newspaper and magazine articles, company financial statements, company advertising information packages, the actual dating service website, and multiple website measurement services.
