NEW YORK (AP) — A new survey suggests acceptance of online dating is growing, with a majority of Internet users saying it's a good way to meet people.
Still, the study from the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life finds that people who actually use online dating sites are still in the minority.
Thirty-eight percent of Americans who characterize themselves as "single and looking" say they've used an online dating site or mobile dating app.
But overall, just 10 percent of Americans say they've tried online dating.
Fifty-nine percent of Internet users agree that online dating is a good way to meet people. That's up from 44 percent in 2005.
The other side of the coin, more than half of online daters surveyed believe someone else "seriously misrepresented themselves" online.
Online dating is most popular with people ages 25 to 34.
