While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.
The data has been gathered from such sources as blogs, online newspaper and magazine articles, company financial statements, company advertising information packages (including media packages), the actual dating service website (or their parent company website), and multiple website measurement services.
Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.A few years ago, OKCupid calculated that 96.25% of e Harmony’s profiles are inactive, using numbers provided by e Harmony themselves.Match was only marginally better, coming in at 93.1% inactive.This means that 19 out of 20 profiles on these sites are either past members who aren’t around anymore, or non-paying members who can’t respond.OKCupid was acquired by Match in 2011, and that article has since been taken down (for obvious reasons).
