Singles partners hollywood american dating us
About half (49%) had been on no more than one date in the previous three months.
These findings emerge from a national survey conducted last fall by the Pew Internet & American Life Project looking at the place of online dating in the larger picture of relationships in America.
Still, bars remain a relatively popular place for long-term relationships to begin.
Here is a rundown from the survey of how the internet users in marriages or long-term relationships first encountered each other.
Perhaps not surprisingly, finding suitable partners is easier in urban areas than in suburban areas, and far easier than in rural areas.
As shown in the table, 57% of city dwellers who are looking for dates say there is plenty of dating potential in their communities compared with 38% of date-seeking suburbanites and only 21% of date seekers residing in rural settings.
Even those who are seeking relationships are not dating frequently.This is especially true for women, for those who have been widowed or divorced, and for older singles.Yet even among the youngest adults, the zest for romance is somewhat muted: 38% of singles ages 18-29 say they are not currently looking for a romantic partner, compared to 22% in that age cohort who are looking for partners. Most relationship-seeking singles say it is difficult to meet people in their towns.Overall: Some key demographic dimensions of each group are shown in the table below: In general, those with college degrees and higher levels of household income are significantly more likely to be married than those with high school diplomas and those living in households with more modest levels of income.
African-Americans and English-speaking Hispanics are more likely than whites never to have married.No doubt many reasons underlie the relatively small size of the active dating population.
