Dating for young adults

15 Oct

Around one in four relationships start online now, and among the millennial generation, the number is likely to be even higher.

The Savior taught, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John ).

Throughout human history, people have sought assistance from others in meeting romantic partners – and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online by enlisting the services of online dating sites and a new generation of mobile dating apps.

A national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 10-July 12, 2015, among 2,001 adults, finds that: This growth has been especially pronounced for two groups who have historically not used online dating at particularly high levels – the youngest adults, as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

The accessibility of television has increasingly allowed young adults to spend a significant portion of their day viewing these programs.

Gathering information on how this viewing is related to their dating and academic habits is important to better understand the decision-making and outcomes for young adults in these two central areas of their lives.
