The first which starts on this page will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.This section also includes any relevant facts about dating, relationships, and marriage that I thought would be of interest to the dating industry.The data has been gathered from such sources as blogs, online newspaper and magazine articles, company financial statements, company advertising information packages (including media packages), the actual dating service website (or their parent company website), and multiple website measurement services.I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.
Popular affair websites include Married Cafe.com, No Strings Attached.com, Friend Finder.com, and XPress.com, but dating sites like Match.com, e Harmony, and Ok are popular, as well.
The second part is for actual dating services (this includes dating sites and dating apps).
In the contents below you will find them divided up accordingly. This is an ongoing project that I plan to add to regularly.
