NEW YORK (AP) – Whether looking for love or a casual encounter, 3 in 10 U.S. adults say they have used a dating site or app.

That’s according to a new Pew Research Center study out Thursday. For the under-35 set, more than half have used the platforms.

The overall number is unchanged since 2019, the last time the center took a look at online dating.

Asked to choose among four potential reasons why they do it, 44% of current or recent users said finding a long-term partner was their goal.

Forty percent responded that they wanted to date casually. Twenty-four percent were in search of casual sex and 22% were hunting for new friends.
