Half of couples will meet online by 2035
Research by social platform eharmony and Imperial College Business School has revealed that if current trends continue, by 2035, half of all couples in the world will have met online.

The research has also concluded that by 2037, the majority of the babies born in the United Kingdom will be to parents who met online.

The report, based on data compiled by eharmony and birth projection from Office of National Statistics, has examined how the internet is changing social interactions.

The data showed that almost one-third (32%) of relationships that begin between 2014 and 2019 started online.

The number of relations begun online between 2004 and 2015 was only 19%.
