Online dating business statistics

While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.The data has been gathered from such sources as blogs, online newspaper and magazine articles, company financial statements, company advertising information packages, the actual dating service website, and multiple website measurement services.

The stigma is beginning to dissipate as an increasing amount of Americans believe that online dating is now socially acceptable.

I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.

The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.

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.
