Divorce rates from online dating
So if you’re having a dry spell right now, you’re not alone. But only one in four women thinking, though women still have a ways to go: only 54% of you have positive feelings about casual sex, compared to 80% of men feeling hunky dory after a hookup.
Don’t assume that all of the women who haven’t been on dates are sad because of that fact. And even if you going on dates, it doesn’t mean they’re going to work out: 67% of women report that all of their dates in the past three months haven’t been a good match. And this is interesting: researchers have found that women with wider hips are more likely to have one-night stands.
It could also be because people signing up for dating sites may be more ready to get married than the average person.
The people who meet on these dating sites are usually not people who have ever encountered one another before and have no other known connections.Tinder is another story, but that's a digression for a different day.However, while sites like e Harmony and Match are quick to espouse their success rates (the former claims that 438 members marry every day) it turns out their data, much like OKCupid, might not be telling the whole truth.A recent joint-study (PDF) conducted by Michigan State University and Stanford found that people who met online weren't as likely to stay together for the long haul as their offline-matched counterparts.
The separation and divorce rates for folks who'd paired up online was much higher than their offline compatriots, and more online-founded relationships tended to end within a year after the survey.
, the paper states that perhaps the lack of thought that goes into online relationships is what has a malignant effect on them. The research also states that the keys to lasting relationships and marriages differs differ quite a bit.
