dating studiesDuring the early years of online dating there were those who thought it would be nothing but a fad. That did not happen and today, this industry is stronger than ever.

In 2020, niche dating is a growing trend. This is something that was not as prevalent 10 years ago. Some of these niche dating trends include interracial dating, Asian dating, sugar daddy dating, senior dating, hookup, as well as many others.

With online dating numbers continuing to surge, it’s never been a better time to learn why so many people are flocking to this way of finding romance.

Our goal at is to learn why and how people interact the way they do when using online dating. We do this through detailed dating studies and in-depth analysis into controversial dating topics.

In our studies we answer questions such as:

  • How many people use online dating?
  • Do more men or women use dating platforms?
  • Why do online daters respond to certain races?
  • What is the most desired ethnicity in the dating world?
  • What is the best dating site in the world?
  • Is there racism in online dating?

Plus hundreds of other questions are answered as we find the facts, figures, and stats that will change the way you look at online dating.
