Some online dating facts
Online dating started in the 90s. Since then, it earned its fair popularity and became one of the most common ways for people from different parts of the world to meet each other. If it wasn’t efficient, people would quit doing it a long time ago. But the popularity of online dating keeps growing, so there should be some good reasons for that.
A research conducted by American sociologists showed that people who met each other online get married sooner than those who met using other ways: thanks to their friends at bars, at work, etc. A sociologist from Stanford Michael Rosenfeld told The Washington Post that a person can be more selective because he or she has a bigger group to select from. Before meeting a person, you can browse tons of profiles and gather valuable information about the person.
More than 17% of marriages and 20% of relationships happen via online dating
The Statistic Brain Research Institute conducted its research and published the following data: 1 in 5 relationships and a bit more than 1 in 6 marriages start online.
It means that people who meet each other online really fall in love, start relationships, and get married. Other people meet in real life, thanks to their friends or just meet in different places or at work.
But 17% of marriages and 20% of relationships start online and that is a very promising statistics. These numbers keep growing. Just imagine – over 49 million people have tried online dating. And nowadays, there are over 8,000 online dating sites globally. It means that people keep searching for each other online and do it pretty successfully!
Couples who meet online are more satisfied with their marriages
The researchers from the University of Chicago wrote a research paper called “Marital Satisfaction and Breakups Differ Across Online and Offline Meeting Venues”. They published the results of the research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research was conducted among married couples in America.
The study’s main author and the professor in psychology at the Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service John Cacioppo said that the outcomes of marriage are influenced by a range of factors. And the way and place of meeting your spouse is only one contributing factor. Anyways, the results of their study showed that people who met each other online are more satisfied with their marriage than those who met in other places.

Online marriages last longer
People who meet online not only get married sooner but their marriages last much longer and are less likely to end within the first year unlike the marriages of people who meet via other ways.
They rarely separate or divorce within the first year of marriage. That statement is supported by data gathered in 2013 from the National Academy of Sciences by Josue Ortega from the University of Essex and Philipp Hergovich of the University of Vienna.
They found that online dating creates more interracial and international marriages which are much stronger from a mathematics perspective. Ortega declared that in his interview with Forbes magazine. So online dating doesn’t only create couples but makes them much stronger. The reason for that is probably that people learn a lot about each other on distance from the very beginning.
Over 80% of people wish to marry someone of a different race
This statistics concerns millennials while most people at the age of 18-35 don’t care about the race of their future partners. According to the report of the Pew Research Center, 8 of 10 millennials confessed they are open to marrying people of a different race. According to Business Insider, millennials wait longer to get married than our previous generations.
Also, they are ready to have physical and romantic relationships before marriage. It means that young people nowadays are open to interracial marriages and distant relationships and do not mind searching for partners abroad. These statistics show that international online dating becomes more and more popular and that more people, especially young ones are willing to unite their lives with people from other countries.
