The percentage of older Americans dating online has doubled, according to Pew Research Center.
The share of Americans ages 55-64 who say they use online dating services has jumped from 6 percent in 2013 to 12 percent in 2015, according to a national survey published Thursday.
Of that 12 percent, most say they are using websites. Use of online dating appears to be growing the most among 18-24-year-olds, nearly tripling over the last two years from 10 percent in 2013 to 27 percent in 2015.
Twenty-two percent reported using mobile dating apps, which may be good news for services such as Tinder, Hinge and Bumble.
Pew conducted this survey of 2,001 adults between June 10 and July 12, 2015.
