#4. Half of the singles in America don’t date
There are over 54 million single people in the United States, and almost all of them have “tried” online dating. Despite this, almost half of all singles haven’t been out on a date in over two years. This reflects one of the realities of the online dating world. Many people browse profiles, send a few messages, but never follow up with offline meetings. Others prefer to go out in groups instead, where the mood is more relaxed and less one-on-one. It’s not a bad idea, however, to give online dating a chance. Close to 20% of modern day marriages are between couples that met online.
