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.
Compared with eight years ago, online daters in 2013 are more likely to actually go out on dates with the people they meet on these sites.
Some 66% of online daters have gone on a date with someone they met through an online dating site or app, up from 43% of online daters who had done so when we first asked this question in 2005.
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.
Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.
A little history: we started in August 1999 as a free online dating site.
The site grew exponentially, with fantastic reviews in the Daily Mail, Mirror, Guardian, Cosmopolitan, Computer Weekly and many other publications.
We were nominated as Steve Wright's Web Site of the Day (BBC Radio 2) and a year later we got the accolade again!
As far as we know we're the only web site ever to have won the award twice.
