Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
When your crush is single, it seems like there are all sorts of possibilities, and once that relationship status changes on Facebook…
well, it can feel like the door just got slammed in your face. It’s not like you were dating and now he’s with someone new, but there’s no denying you have some serious feelings for this person.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
Being around a younger guy makes a woman feel younger as well.
No woman is attracted to a guy who is a couch potato or who is unable to climb a set of stairs without being out of breath, especially if the woman herself is very active.
Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.
That higher sex drive translates, among other things, into being more direct with men.
The more mature women may be interested in dating a younger guy out of sheer curiosity of what it feels like dating someone younger, and also because usually younger guys are more “agile,” active, energetic.
This girl didn't do anything wrong by deciding to go out with this guy, so be sure to remind yourself of that often.
