Most young singles in America do not describe themselves as actively looking for romantic partners.

The survey found that dating in America is, indeed, affected by online matchmaking activity.These data generally align with findings from a 50,000-household survey conducted by the U. Marriage rates then receded as the ranks of both the widowed and the never-married increased.Only 16% of single Americans say they are hunting for a partner.But in our modest sample, urban residents were more likely to be active daters than were suburbanites or rural residents.Perhaps more surprisingly, single men said they had been less active daters than single women. Despite the challenges of finding a mate, a majority of American adults have found marriage partners or long-term relationships.Yet even among the youngest adults, the zest for romance is somewhat muted: 38% of singles ages 18-29 say they are not currently looking for a romantic partner, compared to 22% in that age cohort who are looking for partners. Most relationship-seeking singles say it is difficult to meet people in their towns.No doubt many reasons underlie the relatively small size of the active dating population.African-Americans and English-speaking Hispanics are more likely than whites never to have married.Among internet users, how the married and the committed met each other.Only 43% said it was easy, while 2% said they didn’t know.Moreover, when asked to describe the dating possibilities where they live, a plurality, 47%, said there were very few single people in their town they would be interested in dating.
