Dating App Market Statistics 2021 Revenue, Share & Usage

As recently as 15 years ago, internet dating was popularly seen as — to put it delicately — something for losers. Sites like Match, JDate, and eHarmony were in their infancy; the whole idea of finding a partner on the Internet hadn’t really transcended its origins in the personals section of the newspaper. Because the team is committed to delivering accurate content, we implemented an additional fact-checking step to our editorial process.

Conclusion and Future Studies

As a Premium user you get access to background information and details about the release of this statistic. As a Premium user you get access to the detailed source references and background information about this statistic. Tinder was built by Hatch Labs, a startup incubator funded by IAC.

There is also Taimi and Her etc. but I don’t know much about them.

Bolt and client ABG bury the hatchet and become “proud partners” again

This share rose up to 56 percent among men aged years old and 68 percent among women from the same age group. About half of the surveyed considered it probably possible to encounter one’s soul mate on an online dating service. This trend slightly weakened in the analyses that excluded prefectures with large cities. In addition, only app 1 was significant in the model with both sexes, and app 2 was significant in the model with females only.

38% of respondents agreed that they prefer a virtual first date before meeting in person. Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, Hinge, Match and Plenty of Fish are providing incentives for vaccinated users to help the US Government reach the goal of 70% of American adults getting vaccinated by July 4th. Currently 134 million people in the U.S. are fully vaccinated, or just over 41% of the population. 65% of online daters who have been on a video date, plan to keep virtual dating after the pandemic. It allows them a low-pressure step to further assess compatibility.

To evaluate the effect of commercial sex workers, the number of registered shops was used in this study, but there still was little correlation. It may suggest that there are a lot of commercial sex workers using the apps or another way to search for sexual partners without going through the registered shops. Another possibility is the effect of difference in app penetration rate and syphilis prevalence by age and gender. However, it is difficult to verify the correlations with the currently available data. The development of dating apps in recent years has generated some debates, especially related to the motivations for their use.

Both men and women were within 3 percentage points of the other on all responses. What was also interesting was that just under half of men regularly check their online dating accounts at work while it was only about a quarter of the respondents for women. We don’t really have any conclusions to draw from that, but we did find it interesting.

These profiles then liked all profiles that were presented to them, and then counted the number of returning likes. The researchers found that men liked a large proportion of the profiles they viewed, but received returning likes only 0.6% of the time, while women were much more selective but received matches 10% of the time. Once they received a match, women were far more likely than men to send a message, 21% compared to 7%, but they took more time before doing so.

In a new forecast on app usage, research analytics firm eMarketer predicts that user growth for dating apps like Tinder, Hinge, Match, and OKCupid, will “slow significantly” in the US in 2019. Dating apps are anticipated to see their collective user base grow by 5.3% this year, compared with a 6.5% increase in 2018. Now hookups is another thing, I’m personally not that experienced in but I will tell you what I know. All those aforementioned apps do have options for looking for fwbs or hookups, but as those apps are generally used more for long term relationships you may also want to look at tinder and grinder. Both with their only problems, e.g. transphobic users, fetishication, etc. but may be a option.

Free Dating Sites & Apps

Do people consider just having an active profile on a site sitting idle as active or do they consider being an active participant as actively using? Our theory is that most people interpret it as the latter, which is why we saw this as a viable question and a meaningful set of data. Older people (45-54 years old) were far more likely to use only one dating app than the younger age groups. All three of the other age brackets were between 20.47% and 22.22% responding they only use one dating app at a time. As of January 2018, eleven percent of French respondents stated having already used dating sites exclusively on websites, while four percent said having only used dating mobile applications.

Since we surmised that both syphilis incidence and the app penetration rates are higher in urban areas than in the suburbs, we excluded prefectures containing big cities with 1 million or higher population. However, even after the exclusion, the app penetration rates had highest correlation than other factors. Correlation analyses were conducted between the incidence of these infectious diseases and each app penetration rate as well as prefectural population using Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Similarly, correlation analyses between the incidence of these infectious diseases and the other explanatory variables were conducted. To exclude the influence of big cities, we also conducted the same analyses by removing 11 prefectures containing cities with 1 million or higher population.

Tinder increased its revenue by 62% during this period with an industry-leading $367 million, while Bumble grew 135% to $117 million. “We expect to see both revenue and user growth for our company continue to grow.” While an estimated 23.8 million adults used dating apps in 2018, the monthly user base is expected to reach 25.1 million in the US this year. Analysts attributes the slow in growth to a lower number of new users entering the dating app market.

Plus One was announced by Tinder in October 2021 as a way for users to connect with each other on the Explore page to arrange a date for weddings. Users can signify if they are looking for or are willing to be a wedding date. Tinder Gold, introduced worldwide in August 2017, is a premium subscription feature that allows users to see those who have already liked them before swiping. Face to Face is Tinder’s video chat feature that allows users who have matched to see each other virtually.

Jason has worked in the online dating industry for over 10 years and has personally reviewed over 200 different dating apps and dating websites and continues to be a leading voice in the relationship and dating community, both online and in person. That said, the culture is not devolving back to the era. Tinder and Badoo are still the leaders in monthly active users, and in emerging markets like China and South-east Asia, casual dating apps are far exceeding long-term services in popularity. Overall, the studies covered in this section demonstrate that online dating is perceived as more dangerous than traditional offline dating.
