Online dating for kids 8 10
Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
They also unintentionally function as online dating sites for the elementary and middle school set.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
Fortunately, all of it — the park, the boy, the prom — was merely virtual.
The date took place in Fantage, short for "fantastic age," a virtual world made for kids that lets users chat, attend parties, host fashion shows, play mini-games, and even go to school.
