These Are the Dating Sites Most Likely to Lead to a Long-Term Relationship
Online dating is practically the norm when it comes to meeting your S.O. There are all kinds of new relationship statuses nowadays, like dating partnerships, but many of us just want to find our life partners. Over the course of almost 20 years of Internet dating, there have been plenty of success stories and more than a few hilarious fails. And now there’s some new scientific data that might be able to help you navigate this ever-changing landscape even better.
Consumer Research recently put together a survey that might make your digital dating a little easier. About 32 percent of millennials are on some sort of dating site such as Tinder, OkCupid, Match, eHarmony or Grindr, but the study found that those between the ages of 18 and 35 prefer Tinder and OkCupid to anything else. Over 50 percent of those polled used Tinder, compared with only seven percent who used eHarmony.
What’s most interesting, though, is that the smaller number of daters using Match and eHarmony found the most success in long-term relationships, proving that the intense algorithms used to find matches are actually a pretty viable way to pair up. For sites like Tinder, it’s a numbers game — the more messages, the more likely you’ll have connections.
It’s easy to fall into the “kid in a candy store” trap, where too many options can encourage people to keep searching for The One to tick all the boxes, and the study warns daters not to be too narrowly focused; having an open mind is the key to getting more matches and more responses.
