Percent online dating marriages

Tinder may also be a digital stomping ground for married men, judging by GWI's claim that 62% of its users are male and 38% female.

Eighty-five percent agreed with the statement "I look after my appearance/image," unsurprisingly, while 82% "always like to try new products." Sixty-three percent like to keep up with the latest fashions, while 58% consider themselves to "be much more affluent than the average." Sadly, GWI neglected to include "I send unsolicited penis snaps to single women when my wife isn't looking" as one of its survey's statements. Some may have open relationships, others may be just browsing, and some in the second category may have only recently started their relationship — perhaps even with someone they met on Tinder — and haven't uninstalled the app.

Tinder might prefer another explanation: that people are using its app to meet new people for platonic friendship rather than just romance.

That's according to the research firm Global Web Index (GWI), which released some figures on Tinder from its latest survey of more than 47,000 internet users around the world that suggest the app has a wider demographic.

In fact, the research claims that 30% of Tinder users surveyed are married, while another 12% are in a relationship.
