America women for dating
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.
And two-thirds (68%) of those in marriages or in households living as married said they had been in those relationships for longer than five years.
Yet among the uncommitted, relatively few say they are in the market for relationships.
Among all singles, just 16% say they are currently looking for a romantic partner. Some 55% of singles report no active interest in seeking a romantic partner.
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.Another 41% said there were lots of single people in their town that seemed interesting but 10% said they didn’t know much about the local singles scene.By the same token, substantially more urbanites who are looking for dates (58%) find it easy to meet people in their communities than do suburbanites and rural residents.Whatever the reasons, few of today’s seeking singles describe themselves as active on the dating scene.
