The second are will be for actual dating services and be divided accordingly.This is an ongoing project that I plan to add to regularly.

Like bunnies, dating apps have shown a knack for proliferation.

With a young, increasingly busy and mobile audience, the allure of the dating app business can be intoxicating.

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.

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 site website, and multiple website measurement services.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.On the Monday after Valentine's Day, sees a 15% increase in communication activity on its site.In the days leading up to Valentine's Day, Ok Cupid, which is also part of Match Group (MTCH), sees a 15% increase in new sign-ups.In fact, from the day after Christmas to the day after Valentine's Day, Match sees a 60% increase in new member registrations.
