Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables people to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
An online dating service is a company that provides specific mechanisms (generally websites or applications) for online dating through the use of Internet-connected personal computers or mobile devices.
The survey found that many people aren’t afraid of committing to their partner relatively early in a relationship - 45 per cent of people will be engaged after a year, or have a joint bank account or a property together.
Millennials move on faster than older generations, with a third happy to date again a month after breaking up with someone.
But even if we are quick to try and move on, the survey found that the average person takes two years to fully get over an ex.
28 per cent of people would move in with their partner six months into the relationship, 13 per cent would get engaged and 15 per cent would even get a pet together within half a year.
However, 67 per cent of people move on and start dating someone new within a year - men do so quicker than women too.
