The study’s author, Aaron Smith, said that answers across genders stayed surprisingly stable.In fact, there was only one place where responses differed among genders.The results were compiled by looking at 2017 FBI Internet Crime reports (in particular the catfishing romance scams), the CDC's "Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2017" report, and the "Sex and HIV Education" report from the Guttmacher Institute.
More than half of the women surveyed said that online dating was a more dangerous way to meet people than other approaches.

Just two years ago, American adults ages 18 to 24 used online-dating sites and apps at an average rate for all American adults—about 10 percent. College-aged and post-college-aged Americans are now the most likely demographic to turn to the technology.

(Which makes me wonder how much the idea of some matches being algorithmically better than others has been sold by online-dating companies.)Almost 30 percent of Americans know a long-term relationship which sprang from online dating; about 40 percent of them know someone who uses it.
Most interesting to me: These two numbers leap up significantly among affluent or college-educated Americans.
The research from High Speed also referenced PCMag's own survey into the top dating site/service in each state and noticed that across the 10 safest states, Does that make Tinder your safest bet?
It’s too simple to say that, once, college students met each other in person.
Eighty percent of Americans think a website like Ok Cupid or an app like Tinder are good ways to meet people.
