Online dating has been around since the ’90s, and it’s become pretty commonplace in our lives. But how well is it really working? Is online dating getting people into the relationships they truly want? Online dating success stories are all over the web. However, we wanted to go beyond anecdotal evidence and tell you about the online dating statistics regarding love and marriage.
1. People Who Meet Online Get Married Quicker
Research shows that people who meet online often head to the altar sooner than those who meet through friends, at work, at a bar, or other places like that. Michael Rosenfeld, a sociologist at Stanford, said there are a couple of reasons for this.
2. Over 17% of Marriages Start Through Online Dating
According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, 1 in 5 relationships and a little more than 1 in 6 marriages begin online. We expect those numbers to grow because most people’s intent with online dating is to meet someone for marriage or at least a long-term relationship. For example, 80% of Tinder users say that — not a hookup — is what they’re looking for.
3. Online Marriages are Less Likely to End Within the First Year
Not only are people who are meeting online getting married sooner, but their marriages are also lasting longer than those of couples who didn’t meet online. The former group is less likely to separate or divorce within the first year of marriage than the latter. “We found that online dating corresponds with way more interracial marriages, and way stronger marriages, from a mathematics perspective,” Ortega said in an interview with Forbes.
4. Over 2 Million Couples Met on eharmony
eharmony is one of the most popular and successful dating sites in the world — launching in 2000 and having more than 30 million singles sign up. So it makes sense that eharmony would facilitate a majority of relationships when compared with some of its competitors.
5. eharmony’s Divorce Rate is 3.86%
eharmony’s Divorce Rate is 3.86%, Which is Lower Than the National Average of 50%. While we’re talking about eharmony, it’s also worth mentioning the site reports that its divorce rate is lower than that of the national average: 3.86% vs. 50%. We think eharmony’s 29 Dimensions of Compatibility Quiz may have something to do with it.
