70% of online daters said they think of them as a place to find casual relationships and fun, not love.
Here’s what we learned: Online dating in France is more popular than ever Over the past several years, the practice of online dating in France has steadily risen.
According to a 2014 poll, one in three French adults is on a dating site.
“These days dating in France is much more complicated than in other countries because there’s a lot of pride and fear that make it so the French don’t meet people easily,” Mariotti told the Local.
“It’s not an easy thing to approach a Parisian in the street, in a café, or in line at the cinema, because the French are always afraid to start a conversation.
Most people in the survey said online dating gets them “occasional dates” or flings, but not serious relationships.
