With a staggering 26 million matches made on dating apps and services everyday, it's fair to say that dating has truly gone digital. According to The Telegraph, one in five relationships begin online – but how many of these relationships actually result in marriage?
A new survey by messaging service SimpleTexting involving 500 dating app users, found that 13.6 per cent of respondents have become engaged or are already married from finding their partner online.
The hook-up stigma of dating services is also being crushed. The results found that 38 per cent of men and 44 per cent of women are looking for long-term relationships, while only 23 percent of men and 15 percent of women are looking for something casual.
