Dating market size
Dating market size - Adult free webcam iran
I am working on an online dating industry report and am looking for stats and numbers regarding the size of the US dating market.I’m in data-gathering mode and would appreciate it if you would contact me if you have information to share.
Comscore and others have produced wildly varying predictions.
I have some of the data but at this point I’d like to review whatever I can get my hands on.
General consensus is that the online dating market flattened out in 2005-2006 in the US and the majority of growth is happening overseas as major US dating sites move into EU and Asia through acquisitions and expansion.
I’m looking for the numbers to back this up, or refute it, or tells another story entirely.
Other factoids that would make interesting reading are welcome as well.
Online dating or Internet dating is a personal introductory system where individuals can find and contact each other over the Internet to arrange a date, usually with the objective of developing a personal, romantic, or sexual relationship.
Online dating services usually provide unmoderated matchmaking over the Internet, through the use of personal computers or cell phones.Users of an online dating service would usually provide personal information, to enable them to search the service provider's database for other individuals.Members use criteria other members set, such as age range, gender and location.Online dating sites use market metaphors to match people.Match metaphors are conceptual frameworks that allow individuals to make sense of new concepts by drawing upon familiar experiences and frame-works.This metaphor of the marketplace – a place where people go to "shop" for potential romantic partners and to "sell" themselves in hopes of creating a successful romantic relationship – is highlighted by the layout and functionality of online dating websites.
