Are you investing your time in the right dating apps?
Swiping endlessly through seemingly undateable guys and coming across the same profiles over and over again is disappointing for sure. If you don't have time to waste on your quest for love, new research from SurveyMonkey Intelligence, a platform used to measure app performances, could help you narrow your search. Their recent survey shares some insight into which dating apps offer the best selection of eligible bachelors.
If you frequent Christian Mingle, Coffee Meets Bagel and eHarmony user, than it may be time to rethink your strategy.
According to the results, the majority of users on both apps are female. Over 58% of Christian Mingle users are women. So where are all of the Christian men? It could be all about authenticity. According to the report, women view these services as more reputable because they are not perceived as “hook up” apps.
SurveyMonkey Intelligence recently pulled some of their data to show how people engage in the dating app landscape and the demographics of each user. Their report also showed some other interesting trends that can impact a serious dating app user. The data showed that Tinder is the most used dating app while Bumble has the most users between the ages for 18 to 29. Although Bumble wins with allowing only women to initiate contact, it's not a good app if you are looking for an older companion. Not to mention if you are on Black People Meet, you may have an easier time on the app if you live in the South because over 69% of its users live below the Mason Dixon line. The majority of dating app users call the South home for other popular apps like POF, Zoosk, Clover, Tinder and OKCupid.
