What percentage of online dating relationships actually result in marriage
The same survey also found that there were more male internet users who were currently using dating sites or apps than female users.
Dating sites and apps were most popular among younger internet users - 30 percent of U. internet users aged 18 to 29 years were currently using dating sites or apps and a further 31 percent had done so previously.
Although Rosenfeld says the paper is a "serious and interesting paper" and "Cacioppo is a serious scholar with a big reputation," he is concerned that "the use of an Internet survey which leaves non-Internet households out might bias the results."

While Cacioppo is a noted researcher and the study is in a prestigious scientific journal, it is not without controversy.
