American dating statistics

american dating statistics-57

Once upon a time in America, marriage was the norm for adults.

But now, for the first time since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking these numbers in 1976, there are more single Americans than people who are married. About 50.2 percent — or 124.6 million American adults — are single. Singles have taken over — despite the rise of online dating.

One factor driving this change is that Americans – particularly men – are staying single longer. adults who are married, an analysis of 2015 Census Bureau data shows that about 8% of adults are cohabiting (among those who are householders or partners of householders), and a 2013 Pew Research Center survey found that 11% of the public described themselves as in a committed relationship, even though they were not married or living with a partner.

In 2012, 78% of 25-year-old men had never married compared with 67% of their female counterparts, and by 2016, the median age at first marriage had reached its highest point on record: 29.5 years for men and 27.4 years for women. Marriage may be on the decline, but remarriage is rising.

My outlook may have entered a vicious cycle: It’s hard to get excited about meeting someone who won’t care about you that much.
