Like most things in life, it's quality, not quantity that's important.Here at e Harmony we believe there's a better approach to online dating than being bombarded with profiles and pictures.The findings revealed that money is an awkward topic to discuss — although the ins and outs of prospective partners' finances is a source of intense interest.In the survey, less than 7% of online daters said they'd be willing to disclose financial details — such as how much debt they are in, their credit score, income, and spending habits — before meeting someone in person.Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.And 38% of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner have used online dating at one point or another.These are among the key findings of a national survey of dating and relationships in the digital era, the first dedicated study of this subject by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project since 2005.
General public attitudes towards online dating have become much more positive in recent years, and social networking sites are now playing a prominent role when it comes to navigating and documenting romantic relationships.
To gain insight into how people navigate money and romantic relationships, Discover and Match Media Group recently commissioned a survey of 2,000 Americans, ages 18 and up.
All the respondents maintained an active online dating profile, or met their partner through a dating app or platform.
