10 Online Dating Facts

1. Best first date: have a drink somewhere, and maybe dinner afterward.

2. On the first date, a restaurant is always a good choice, surveys show that Italian restaurants are the most preferred on these occasions.

3. Most important to people in an online profile are the’About me’ (55%) and the ‘Pictures’ section (45%). So sometimes pictures really worth a thousand words.

4. Despite this, about one-third of online daters do not upload a profile picture to their online dating profile.

5. People who do upload a picture are better to be uploading photos with which they can enhance their qualities and make themselves unique – meanwhile, they still look attractive of course. Pictures about hobbies can give a great spark to conversations when meeting each other in person.

6. After the ‘About me’ and the ‘Pictures’ section on a dating profile, the most important for online daters is the geographical location and the age of the potential partner.

7. When looking for a potential partner online, some of the most important dealbreakers are smoking, drinking, political views, religious views, education, racial background, and children.

8. 51% of all online dating people are in a relationship, only 21% are really single and 11% are married. (that’s creepy)

9. 80% of online daters know someone who found love on the internet – this is a great motivation for most of them.

10. About 50% of all people on the world know someone who dated someone they met on the internet. Out of them, about 30% knows more than one person.

    “51% of all online dating people are in a relationship)” – I would say they are “on a break” and the same group can be considered “re-bounders” that vanish after a few seemingly good dates. Dating sites are packed full of them, 51% I’d fully believe. Been there, done that – if they haven’t been single for at least a year you are dealing with one of them and are on borrowed time.
