Moving beyond dates, one quarter of online daters (23%) say that they themselves have entered into a marriage or long-term relationship with someone they met through a dating site or app.
That is statistically similar to the 17% of online daters who said that this had happened to them when we first asked this question in 2005.
Another bone of contention hindering the online dating reputation is the fraud and scam element that exists today, which is fuelled by desperate gangs of online crooks who strategically and calculatingly disguise themselves as worthy adversaries.

Even today, online dating is not universally seen as a positive activity—a significant minority of the public views online dating skeptically.
