While it wasn't awkward, I'll admit it wasn't exactly conducive to scouting out a new boyfriend either.
According to some estimates, there are over 8,000 online dating sites worldwide, and over 2,500 in the US alone.
Yes, that’s just the number of different it’s no wonder that many people find online dating overwhelming!
Add those complications to the fact that online dating is, for many people, a thoroughly dispiriting experience, and it’s no wonder that older adults are more likely to rate it as a negative experience than any other demographic. If people are finding love through online dating sites, why does it fail so many others?
To answer this, let’s take a look at some of the main reasons online dating doesn’t work. Researchers in the UK recently calculated the odds of finding a compatible partner if they used the average person’s requirements (in terms of desired age, physical requirements, location, and so on).
The girl/guy ratio was great (about 60/40) but I don't think the class was restricted to just singles so I couldn't tell who was a regular and who was there for the event.
My event aside, there's lots of fitness singles events and activities.
Of course, online dating wouldn’t be so popular if it didn’t work for so many people.
According to some estimates, over a third of marriages in the US are now from couples who first met online.
(Interestingly, that definition of “meeting online” includes more than just online dating sites, and includes all sorts of social networks and online communication.) But for many people, there is a growing body of evidence that online dating simply doesn’t work. If you’re aged 50 or over, finding a partner online is even more complicated.
They found that just over 84,440 people in the UK fit the average person’s requirements, from an adult population of 47 million. In other words, applying the average person’s filters when it comes to finding a compatible partner gives you less than a 1 in 500 chance of being successful.
And it gets worse the more prescriptive you are about your requirements.
