Do online dating relationships last
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
Turns out the break-up rate is higher among couples who meet online versus couples who meet offline.
Separate research has studied the difference in these relationships before; yet in those studies, the participants were all married.
Many online daters enlist their friends in an effort to put their best digital foot forward.
Some 22% of online daters have asked someone to help them create or review their profile.
In order to get a better understanding of relationship outcomes, researchers analyzed the data collected from both the married and unmarried participating in the 2009 “How Couples Meet and Stay Together” study, conducted by Stanford University.
