For and against internet dating


Some 6% of internet users who are in a marriage, partnership, or other committed relationship met their partner online—that is up from 3% of internet users who said this in 2005.



Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.

Half (54%) of online daters have felt that someone else seriously misrepresented themselves in their profile.
