Middle-aged Americans, 55 to 64, are now twice as likely to try looking for someone online since 2013.The technology also gained some users among 45-to-54-year-olds.That’s the most interesting result from a Pew Research Center survey released Thursday on Americans’ online-dating habits.Conducted early last summer, the poll found that use of the services has grown modestly since 2013.The poll found that 27 percent of Americans age 18 to 24 used online dating sites and apps, up from 10 percent in 2013.

College was scaffolded with social activities meant to introduce strangers to other strangers, whether it was speed dating or fraternity-sorority hang-outs.“This shows what a major role the Internet now plays in the lives of millions of people around the world,” said Sam Mountford, research director of Globe Scan, the polling firm that conducted the research, in a statement reported on Reuters.“For many, and particularly in the developing world, it’s not just somewhere to work, shop or communicate with friends, but a credible way of finding a partner in life.” Online dating is huge, says Karol Ward, a therapist who counsels couples and individuals.Fifteen percent of Americans have now used a website or app to look for a romantic partner; three years ago, only nine percent had.As it happens, the only group which has taken to online dating at a rate like very young adults have been older adults.
