Cell phone dating numbers
Others believe it is all about choice, as Joe Brennan Jr., vice president of Webdate says, "It's about giving people a choice. They can date on their handset, it's all about letting people decide what path is best for them." A recently published study shows that currently 7.8 million singles in the UK search for a partner online every month.This is already a significant increase from 2011 (6.3 million).These services allow their users to provide information about themselves in a short profile which is either stored in their phones as a dating ID or as a username on the mobile dating site.They can then search for other IDs online or by calling a certain phone number dictated by the service.You can also call phones and mobiles and send text messages at great rates.
Some experts believe that the rise in mobile dating is due to the growing popularity of online dating.The popularity of cell phone dating in Germany, Canada, France, UK and Japan are the most active countries.The United States lags behind in dating by SMS or phone apps until recently.Over the past few years, more people have been shifting their dating search from newspapers, to the web, meeting singles on their mobile cell phone- called SMS Chat or SMS Dating.There is more anonymity with cell phone dating- all messages go through the dating service so the person on the other end doesn't have your direct phone number.
