Most daters report that online dating is a pretty good experience.

Just over half of online daters report that they had a mostly positive experience with online dating websites—52% reported a mostly positive experience, while 29% said it was mostly negative, 7% said it was both positive and negative, and 12% were not sure.

Being a broadband user or someone who is single and looking in an area where it is difficult to meet people also increases the likelihood of being connected to someone with online dating experience: While equal numbers of urban, suburban and rural internet users have tried online dating websites, adults who live in urban communities are more likely than those who live in suburban or rural areas to say that they know someone who has used an online dating website; 35% of urban adults know an online dater, compared with 30% of suburban adults and 26% of rural adults.

However, other subgroups report greater proximity to online daters: One in six adult Americans (15%) say they know someone who has been in a long-term relationship or married someone they met online.

Again, certain subgroups are even more likely to know someone who has eventually ended up with a long-term partnership that began at an online dating site.

Three in ten (31%) online daters were married but are now divorced, separated or widowed.

The following table gives the basic percentages of which online Americans use online dating sites.

The table below lists the top ten websites that fall within the personals and dating category: Those who have used dating websites are more likely to describe themselves as supporters of gay marriage and identify as “someone who likes to try new things” when compared with the general population of adults and all internet users.

They are less likely to identify themselves as religious and are less likely to say they believe in traditional gender roles for men and women.

Some of those who have used online dating websites are now officially “off the market.” Of the 16 million American adults who have ever used online dating websites, about one quarter (23%) are now married or living as married.

Still, the majority (45%) of those who have visited the sites have never been married.

Among those who are single and looking, 44% report knowing an online dater.
