As was the case in previous Pew Research Center surveys of online dating, college graduates and the relatively affluent are especially likely to know people who use online dating or to know people who have entered into a relationship that began online.Nearly six-in-ten college graduates (58%) know someone who uses online dating, and nearly half (46%) know someone who has entered into a marriage or long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.A non-profit group that discusses being single and the option not to marry for both heterosexual and same-sex couples.Also houses numerous statistics on being single, open relationships and cohabitation before marriage.The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who report having used online dating has nearly tripled in the last two years.Today 27% of these young adults report that they have done so, up from just 10% in early 2013.Although 15% of Americans have used online dating themselves, a larger share report that they are familiar with online dating from the experiences of people they know.

For instance, just 55% of non-users agree that online dating is a good way to meet people, while six-in-ten agree that online dating is more dangerous than other ways of meeting people.As one would expect, most Americans, 92%, say they have dated someone of their own racial or ethnic background in their lifetimes -- 97% of whites have dated a white person, 95% of blacks have dated a black person, and 83% of Hispanics have dated another Hispanic.But it is not uncommon for people to report dating someone from a different racial or ethnic background -- 48% of Americans overall say they have done so, including 69% of Hispanics, 52% of blacks, and 45% of whites.Seventy-two percent of whites approve of a white man dating a black woman, while 65% of whites approve of a black man dating a white woman.There are substantial differences by age in approval of interracial dating.
