Find friends online not dating
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.Some friends are acquaintances – they're basically your "hi, how are you doing" friends. Some friends are friends of convenience – when you go to a certain place, they're there too, and you hang out with them, but outside of that place, you have no contact with them.Then there are your go-to friends – these are the friends that are always ready to jump on the bandwagon, whether you're in need of a party date, a wingman, or just someone to watch the big game with, they're raring to go.Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
Your relationship with this person is based on affection, trust, honesty, and loyalty, and is worth nuturing.

To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
