We refer to these individuals throughout this report as “online daters,” and we define them in the following way: Taken together, 11% of all American adults have done one or both of these activities and are classified as “online daters.” In terms of demographics, online dating is most common among Americans in their mid-20’s through mid-40’s.Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.
Most of the people that write about online dating write about what’s wrong with it. I mean, that’s what news is – emphasize the bad, misery loves company, etc.I came across an interesting statistic recently; 25% of relationships that start as affairs succeed.Actually, I was surprised, if I had to guess, I would have thought the figure to be much lower.Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.The University of Western Australia This policy addresses the appropriate management of personal relationships in the workplace with the objective of maintaining public trust and confidence in the integrity and professionalism of the decisions made and the services provided by the University.
UWA acknowledges that some staff and students of the University will be related to one another or develop an intimate personal and/or sexual relationship.
They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.
