How Couples Meet

With the rise of the online dating for the first time there is tons of easily accessible data on how people look for and choose their partners. A few interesting findings in this paper:

  • The internet has done a lot for gays and lesbians meet but has mostly displaced other forms of socializing for heterosexuals.
  • Relationships formed online tend to last as long as other relationships.
  • Despite the internet, the partnership rate for heterosexuals has remained roughly constant.
Good read through (fun with statistics!)
