This week, the matchmaking giant released the results of a recent survey it commissioned called "Modern Dating Myths." The survey compared the app's users to traditional, offline daters.
The survey found that a majority of women using dating apps had experienced some form of harassment, running the gamut from feeling harassed “once or twice” to “always.” Men were much less likely to experience harassment, with only about 21% of those surveyed saying they’d been bothered.
Tinder and Ok Cupid were the worst culprits, with 39% and 38% of respondents saying they’d been harassed, respectively.
In fact, they report that 35% of online daters say "I love you" within the first three months of being in a relationship, with the number for offline daters being slightly lower at 30%.
Interestingly, their surveys also discovered that men are 7% more likely, overall, to say "I love you" than women are.
