Online dating statistics 2016 2016
The Tinder app is built around the idea of the double opt-in – taking out the element of embarrassment and unwanted attention.
You can only talk to someone if you both like each other.
Tinder is a dating app that matches users to others based on geographic proximity.
The Global Web Index survey also shows that 76% of Tinder users were based in an urban setting, while 17% were rural and 7% rural.
Tinder vigorously denied this, arguing that their largest Tinder demographic was 18-24 year olds.
Of this group, 93% had never been married Tinder replied – though this figure (drawn from ONS data) pertains only to the UK, as it was made in response to request from The Guardian (in all Tinder claimed 1.7% of its users were married).
Over a third of those aged 18-24, and a quarter of those aged 25-34 use Tinder, as well as one in five in the 35-44 bracket.
There’s a small spike in Tinder usage among over 75s as compared with the immediately younger bracket.
