Spending money on online dating in the Netherlands 2017

Dating has changed quite a bit in the past few decades. While people used to rely on family, friends or mutual acquaintances to meet with their potential partners in the past, internet has changed the game for daters nowadays. People use apps like Tinder, Badoo and several others to meet their better halves. These apps are mostly free of charge, but many users tend to pay for upgrades to gain advantage over the competition. So, as for the Netherlands: How many respondents paid for either one of these services in 2017?

In 2017, almost 40% of Dutch respondents (18 to 64) stated that they have paid for dating websites or apps within the last 12 months. Another 27% paid for dating agencies. However, roughly half of the respondents didn’t spend any money on these services in the period mentioned.
