At first glance, the survey results suggest ample targets for Cupid among American adults.
The table below shows that while the majority of American adults (56% or 113 million people) are not in the dating market (they are married or living as married), the number of potential romance-seekers is still huge.
Yet among the uncommitted, relatively few say they are in the market for relationships.
Among all singles, just 16% say they are currently looking for a romantic partner. Some 55% of singles report no active interest in seeking a romantic partner.
When singles who are actively looking for partners were asked about the dating scene where they live, a majority of those actively seeking dates (55%) said it was difficult to meet people.
Only 43% said it was easy, while 2% said they didn’t know.
Among internet users, how the married and the committed met each other.
Even those who are seeking relationships are not dating frequently.
About half (49%) had been on no more than one date in the previous three months.
These findings emerge from a national survey conducted last fall by the Pew Internet & American Life Project looking at the place of online dating in the larger picture of relationships in America.
The survey found that dating in America is, indeed, affected by online matchmaking activity.
But in analyzing our findings, we discovered another story: Large numbers of single Americans are not actively looking for relationships and even significant numbers of those looking for partners are not that active on the dating scene.
