    A new survey from Pew Research shows that 25% of online dates find long-term relationships or a spouse and that attitudes toward finding love online are shifting.

    The Pew Research Center reported that nearly 25 percent of online daters find a long-term relationship or spouse.  They report that 1 in 10 Americans have used online dating.  Of that, sixty-six percent went out on a date with someone they met online.   The survey also found that attitudes are shifting more toward the positive for online dating.  Fifty-nine percent of internet users polled agreed that “online dating is a good way to meet people.”  That’s up 15 points from 2005.  And 53% agreed people find a better match because they get to know people better.  But ladies you still have to watch out for creepers.  Forty-two percent of women reported an uncomfortable online dating encounter as opposed to 17% of men.
