Opinion on dating

The editorial staff is in no way involved with the opinion pieces published with the exception of editorials.

Editorials are written by the editorial board consisting of the opinion editor, managing editor and editor-in-chief.

Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.

That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.

The Red & Black publishes opinions from a number of contributors and staff columnists.

Their opinions do not reflect the opinions of the editorial staff.

Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.

Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.

Some 22% of online daters have asked someone to help them create or review their profile.

A recently discovered bug in Apple's i OS system causes apps, and sometimes entire phones, to crash when receiving a specific character in a message.

At the University of Georgia, a student sent out this bug in class's Group Me group message.

Women are especially likely to enlist a friend in helping them craft the perfect profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.

5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
