Statistics of internet dating
While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.
Internet dating has been portrayed mostly with "success stories", because many of those who have had bad experiences are too embarrassed to talk about them openly, thinking they are the rarity, or the "unlucky one". What's tricky here is people WANT to believe they are going to find what they are looking for (nothing wrong with that) and DON'T want to believe someone may be lying to them or playing games.The day has come when internet dating is considered a legitimate way of meeting new people in the endless search for the right person.Chat rooms have replaced bar rooms, and internet dating sites and personal ads no longer have the "stigma" that they once did.This page is an attempt by me to organize the vast majority of online dating related statistics and facts available on the Internet.Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.The anonymity of internet dating has afforded con artists a new playground for scams, and has allowed people to be anyone they think you want them to be because they are engaging you primarily through the written word.
This site is not meant to bring forth the message that its impossible to find love through internet dating, but to inform people of the dangers that are out there.
Internet dating is still a relatively new way of people connecting with people from all over the globe, and people need to understand the dangers out there so they can make their search a safe one.
Included in this site or stories from those that have been there, and are willing to share their experiences with others in an effort to educate people and learn from their mistakes.
In the contents below you will find them divided up accordingly. This is an ongoing project that I plan to add to regularly.

I was curious just how big tinder has become, so I did a little searching recently.
