Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.
For young adults in particular, this overall increase in online dating usage has been accompanied by a dramatic increase in the use of mobile dating apps.
In heterosexual matches via Bumble, only female users can make the first contact with matched male users, while in same-sex matches either person can send a message first. Statista assumes no liability for the information given being complete or correct.
Due to varying update cycles, statistics can display more up-to-date data than referenced in the text.
In 2018, online dating revenue in the United States amounted to 555 million U. In comparison, Tinder had a 34.5 percent daily usage rate and Bumble had a 29.2 percent daily access rate.
Bumble is a dating app founded by former co-founder of Tinder, Whitney Wolfe, and is marketed as a feminist dating app where users have options of searching for romantic matches or, in "BFF mode", friends.As was the case in previous Pew Research Center surveys of online dating, college graduates and the relatively affluent are especially likely to know people who use online dating or to know people who have entered into a relationship that began online.
