Are you ready to settle down and want to know how online dating can work for you? Here are some stats on online dating and how they ended up in marriage.

Research shows that people who meet online often head to the altar sooner than those who meet through friends, at work, at a bar, or other places like that. Michael Rosenfeld, a sociologist at Stanford, said there are a couple of reasons for this.

“You can be more selective because you have a bigger group to select from,” he told The Washington Post. “A lot of the information-gathering that courtship is really about is sped up by the information you can gather from the profiles and from a person before actually meeting them.”

According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, 1 in 5 relationships and a little more than 1 in 6 marriages begin online.

About 17% of marriages and 20% of relationships begin online.

We expect those numbers are only going to grow, as more than 49 million people have tried online dating, and nearly 8,000 dating sites exist in the world.

We also expect those numbers to grow because most people’s intent with online dating is to meet someone for marriage or at least a long-term relationship.

It can work for you!!!
