Are you single with the hope of getting married through online dating?
News: Dating research updated for 2021 and date status
As you can imagine, I’ve been looking for quotes every day, and I’ve been doing it for the last 25 years. He first co-founded It’s Just Lunch, author of the book series Dating In America, and then grew the IJL to more than 110 locations worldwide in the 1990s and early 2000s. ‘Internet. After selling to Private Equity (Match.com was one of the bidders), I delved into my next endeavor as a dating expert, dating coach helping singles navigate all levels of online dating, from write down your dating profiles until you choose the right dating sites. maximize success by selecting photos and coaching entrepreneurs, widows and celebrities.
I only repeat the above, as I am 100% independent, not linked to Match, Raya, The League, eHarmony, etc. So when Match along with a neutral third party publishes data, I take a look at their data. findings. (Match has the critical mass to do this study; they have a lot of dating sites next to Match).
I’ve included your link later in this article, but in the meantime, I’m pulling out key data for my readers (my comments are in red, Match in blue / black). Here we come!
Good things can come out of the worst circumstances, and pandemics are no exception. While many expected the pandemic to cause a deluge of post-traumatic stress (and rightly so), we actually found the opposite within the single population: “post-traumatic growth.” Or as we like to call it “The Glow of the Great.” Because that’s exactly what happened. Men and women of all ages matured more, improved their health, and restored their sexual, romantic, and vital priorities. Let’s talk about good news!
Simply put, singles are coming out of this pandemic in better versions of themselves. Whether it was all that extra time alone, or just a general desire to get up from the couch, they made the most of it in 2021. And it paid off. 72% improved prioritizing important things in their lives and 66% improved taking care of your mental health. More than 50% also made improvements in their physical health, building stronger family relationships, disconnecting from social media, and increasing their self-confidence. It’s safe to assume that singles are more eligible than ever.
Absolutely agree. While speaking and training hundreds of clients during the pandemic, very few were couch potatoes. Many took online classes from writing to tap dancing. A non-swimmer is now a master level swimmer. Smart people took advantage of this time once the initial shock was settled.
The culture of connection is history.
We’re not saying the nightstands are definitely gone, but they’re definitely in decline. And social distancing is not the only explanation. The pandemic has fueled the desire for more meaningful, strong, long-term relationships. And to the surprise of many, young singles are the ones most adopting this trend. (We told you they were growing!) So how can this affect the advancing society? Only time will tell. But it is possible that this desire for more commitment may lead future generations to grow up with more family stability. And we don’t hate the sound of that.
Specific case: Tinder. A few years ago, I would not have recommended this site to clients looking for long-term relationships. Now, about 75% are looking to find a more serious relationship. Much changed in the last 18 months, I don’t like to refer to 9/11, but I saw the same mindset back then, an approach that returned to the importance of love relationships.
Today, only 11% of singles want to go out casually.

of the bachelors spent more time elaborating more thoughtful messages in dating applications.
I have no doubt here. Single means many things: single (duh), widow, just ended a long-term relationship, a long, sour divorce, or a friendly divorce. A lot of my online dating training is about crafting very personalized messages, not a novel, but a few lines that show that you read their profile and that you might be related to something. Gone are the “what’s going on” or copy / paste messages. That’s probably why more than 60% of my clients have known each other and are now in a serious relationship.
Vaccines: A Shot at Love
Not only all the media talk about the Covid vaccine. Singles prioritize vaccination significantly more than the average American. And we have the numbers to prove it: 73% of singles are vaccinated, compared to 64% of the U.S. population. Whether it’s because of their more active lifestyles or because they’re not tied to the same social pressures as their partner, most singles don’t look shy when it comes to taking photos. And they hope that their future dates will feel the same.
Absolutely. I’m not here to put myself in a soap box and change your mind about vaccines. My clients fall 95% are affected, perhaps because I work primarily with the market for 35-65 year olds or older. If it’s not in your online dating profile, you’ll be asked!

Overall, I found this report very encouraging about online dating with some valid points. Since many believe that pandemics can be our new norm, for the last 2 years we have learned to be safe and fall in love!
