Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.
A national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 10-July 12, 2015, among 2,001 adults, finds that: This growth has been especially pronounced for two groups who have historically not used online dating at particularly high levels – the youngest adults, as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
Some 41% of American adults say they know someone who uses online dating, while 29% indicate they know someone who has married or entered into a long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.
You answer to nobody and can very well do as you please—satiate your every sexual fantasy without the mess of emotional attachments.
Whatever your situation may be, you should never feel guilty for going online to pursue casual dating.
The “no strings attached” type is the poster child for every movie or TV show plot that had been made about casual sex.
This involves hooking up with a total stranger you’ve just met a few hours ago in a hookup app or at the bar.
