Dating Statistics 2024 – Surveys, Studies and Random Facts

After months of research, surveys and a lot of drama (still unfinished) I’ve put together the world’s largest list of dating statistics all in one page for my own amusement and hopefully yours too.

This page is organized in sections, under each section you will find the sources of the stats. Some of the data comes from our own in-house surveys of 11,443 USA adults between the age of 21 and 49.

Additionally to our surveys, the numbers on this page come from the study of 103 sources and millions of data points (I don’t know exactly what this word means but I think it means from the responses and analysis of millions of people across the 103 sources.).

We didn’t invent the wheel, although I am pretty sure it was my great-great-great-….-great-grandpa to do it, but we did the hard work to organize all the data in a neat way and we added our own survey results into the mix, my dear snorty friend.

Enjoy!

Infidelity Statistics – How Common is Cheating?

They say that there’s only two sure things in life: Death and taxes. They’re wrong, however, because we’ve discovered that there are three: Death, taxes, and infidelity.

Yes, that’s right. Cheating. Doing the dirty. Playing away. Whatever you want to call it, this unfaithful pastime has been the subject of many movies, novels, plays and doomed relationships for centuries, and it looks like that’s never going to change.

No matter how much they might love someone, both men and women are very easily led by their genitals, and we’ve gathered the juiciest, most secret, and illicit facts and statistics, to help us answer one main question:

How common is cheating?

How Common is it to Cheat on Someone?

I mean, it must be pretty common, right? We all know someone who’s done it, and celebrities seem to do it all the time … but let’s try to analyze this a bit deeper, shall we?

Let’s put on our white coats, step into our lascivious laboratory, look through our monogamy-hating microscope, and ask ourselves the following questions:

How often does the average person cheat? What percentage of boyfriends cheat? How common is it for a girl to cheat?

So many questions, so little time (Well, for you, anyway. We could talk about this stuff all day!).

Here are some stats that may surprise you, especially if you’re a cheater yourself, and currently feeling like the worst person in the world. (Oh, and this doesn’t excuse you, by the way … so don’t start feeling too good about yourself!)

  • Over 46% of couples have claimed they’ve had affairs.
  • Around 24% of married couples have stayed together after being subject to infidelity.
  • 47.5% of post-cheating couples said they enforced new “relationship rules” afterwards

  • 60% of extra-marital affairs begin with colleagues or close friends.
  • Most affairs last an average of 2 years.
  • 69% of unfaithful marriages end in separation.

What is the Most Common Cause of Infidelity?

When someone is caught cheating, their natural response is to come up with an excuse. In fact, it’s fairly common to use that old break-up classic “It’s not you, it’s me” and completely turn it on its head.

In other words: “It’s not me. It’s you!”

But is there a deeper reason for this kind of behavior? Is it backed up by science? Can we really excuse this kind of thing by resorting to statistics?

Well, maybe not, but at least we can give it a good try by asking these two questions:

What is the root cause of cheating? What are the 8 reasons people have affairs?

Yes, that’s right. If you’re looking for an excuse, there’s at least eight of them coming up in these juicy little stats we’ve prepared:

  • An investigation of 495 people (87.9% heterosexual) at a USA university revealed 8 main reasons why people cheat.
  • The reasons identified were lack of love, anger, need for variety, situation or circumstance, self-esteem, low commitment, sexual desire, and neglect.
  • A person’s new object of desire can provide not only sexual relief, but also emotional and psychological support.
  • 62.8% admitted that they expressed a great deal of affection to their new love interest.
  • 61.2% admitted that there could often be sexually explicit chats involved.
  • 37.6% admitted that their conversations could be very intimate.
  • 11.1% found themselves saying “I love you”.

Where is Infidelity Most Common?

So, we’ve talked about “How?” We’ve talked about “Why?” So, let’s look at this from a different perspective, and talk about “Where?”

Every affair needs to start somewhere, right? In a very specific location. But hey, let’s not restrict our “Where?” questions to rooms, buildings, and online spaces.

Let’s take this worldwide, see what cheating looks like all over the globe, find out where infidelity is most prominent, and see if it shows up in some surprising places.

Imagine if Wally from “Where’s Wally?” was a cheating, philandering piece of crap, and we were following him around the planet, hunting him down like a dog. That’s basically what we’re going for here, as we ask these three very searching questions:

Where do most affairs happen? What country has the highest infidelity rate? What country has the lowest cheating rate?

Let’s get into the stats!

  • Most affairs begin in the workplace, followed by the gym, on social media, and even in church!
  • Thailand is the country with the highest infidelity rate.
  • Over 50% of the married population of Thailand admit to cheating at least once.
  • Denmark is in second place, where 46% of people admit to fooling around outside marriage.
  • Italy and Germany share third place, with 45% admitting to infidelity.
  • Several other countries have rates of over 40% including France, Belgium, and Norway.
  • Iceland has the lowest infidelity rate with only 9% admitting cheating, and mostly with ex-partners.
  • Greenland is almost as decent with an infidelity rate of only 12%.
  • Ireland comes next, where a mere 15% admitted cheating, all with ex-partners.

What Are Some Common Types of Cheating?

Wait. What? There’s more than one kind of cheating?

Well, yeah, it’s not all the same for everyone, you know. There are more flavors of infidelity than flavors of ice-cream (and probably just as much licking involved) and one cheater can be very different to another.

We can’t tar them all with the same brush … although we do have permission to tar and feather them if we catch them in the act (and then parade them through the town naked, asking the locals to throw rotten fruit at them).

Anyway, strap yourself in, because we’re going to be examining a variety of different approaches to infidelity, as we ask ourselves these highly important questions:

What are the 7 types of affairs? What is Microcheating? What is emotional cheating texting?

Bring on the stats!

  • There are generally considered to be 7 types of affairs: Accidental, Avoidance, Philanderer, Entitlement, Split Self, Exit, and Sexual Addiction.
  • There are also considered to be a couple of non-sexual forms of cheating.
  • Micro cheating is something that shares the dishonesty and secrecy of infidelity, without the physical intimacy.
  • Micro cheating is hard to define, as the line between faithful and unfaithful is different for everyone.
  • Micro cheating can include online flirting, messaging an ex-partner, or growing very friendly with a colleague, etc.
  • Micro-cheating can eventually evolve into an intimate but non-sexual form of infidelity called “emotional cheating”.
  • 35% of married women and 45% of married men admit to having emotional affairs.
  • Couples under 30 are at a higher risk of becoming involved in emotional affairs.
  • 3% of children are born due to cheating which developed from an emotional affair.
  • Compared to men, twice as many women (88%) said they considered emotional infidelity to be worse than physical cheating.
  • 48% of married guys suggest that “emotional dissatisfaction” was the main factor behind their cheating.
  • When an emotional affair does turn into physical infidelity, it still takes at least a month for 3 out of 4 men to make the move.

What Type of Person is a Serial Cheater?

Things with the word “serial” in front of them are never good, are they?

“Serial killer” springs to mind, or “serial offender” and serial cheaters are probably just as hated (possibly even more so, if you happen to be the victim of one of them!).

After all, it’s hardly fair that these people keep getting away with things, is it? Even serial killers eventually end up with life in prison, or the death sentence, but the same certainly can’t be said for that smooth-talking SOB who seems to spend every waking moment trying to score.

But is there a mental reason behind this? And can constant cheating (or even cheating just once, for that matter) affect you in a physical way?

Well, we’re going to put on our stethoscope, ask you to recline on our psychiatrist’s couch, and ask these two questions:

What personality type cheats the most? What happens to your body when you cheat?

Here are some more stats!

  • According to research, cheaters are likely to fall into three main personality types: psychopaths, sociopaths, and lonely hearts.
  • Psychopaths are more likely to have a large amount of sex partners, due to being able to separate sex from love, and not being bothered by lying for long periods.
  • Sociopaths can often have an “avoidant attachment” which makes it difficult for them to trust, rely, or get close to people, and therefore seek people who are less committed and intimate.
  • Lonely hearts may feel their spouse is emotionally unavailable and look for solace in an affair.
  • 71% of men also gave “boredom” as their main reason for cheating.
  • Infidelity can also affect the cheater physically, due to a combination of stress, anxiety, and guilt
  • Cheaters can encounter sleep problems, brain fog, stomach aches, hives, performance anxiety, flu-like symptoms, and loss of appetite.

How Long Do Cheating Relationships Last?

They say that “all good things must come to an end” … but the same can be said of bad things too.

Affairs, for instance, very rarely turn into long-term relationships … but why is that? Many cheaters clearly feel like they’re in love with their secret partner, even going as far as to say those three all-important words (I mean “I love you”, by the way, not “pass the lube”).

And so, as we wind this article to a close, we think it’s best to ask ourselves when, why, and how these temporary flings come to an end, with the following questions.

How do affairs usually end? What percent of relationships end in infidelity?

Here are some final philandering statistics!

  • Most affairs last only 6 to 24 months.
  • The “love hormone” oxycontin starts to drop around 9 to 18 months into the affair.
  • In the early stages of an affair, each party is on their “best behavior”. As the couple get to know each other, the interest in each other naturally starts to wane.
  • People who only see each other for short amounts of time don’t experience the boredom, routine, and stress of everyday life. This becomes the norm as the affair goes on.
  • The American Psychological Association claims that cheating is the cause of 20% to 40% of divorce cases.
  • 42% of people who’d been divorced also admitted to having more than one affair.
  • The National Institutes of Health states that 88% of married couples separated due to infidelity.
  • Compared to peoples in their fifties and sixties, those under thirty and over seventy were far less likely to separate due to cheating.
  • A Gallup poll noted that over 50% of people said they would divorce their partner if they discovered they were cheating.
  • 31% of married people would give a cheating partner a second chance before divorcing them.
  • According to Psychology Today, there’s a much higher chance of women initiating divorce than men.

While most people only count traditional sexual encounters, others don’t seem to count some of those if certain conditions aren’t met.

  • 59.8% of people only count penetrative sex.
  • 43.2% of people count penetrative and non-penetrative sex.
  • 15.7% of people don’t count hookups if they don’t orgasm.

Do You Have To Tell Someone How Many Sexual Partners You’ve Had?

When talking to a potential partner, the question of ‘what someone’s sexual body count is’ gets asked quite a bit, but that doesn’t mean you have to tell them.

In fact, quite a few people lie about their numbers or don’t disclose that information at all when talking to someone.

  • 11.6% of men don’t discuss how many sexual partners they’ve had
  • 10.3% of women don’t discuss how many sexual partners they’ve had
  • 35% of women want to know how many people their significant other had as sexual partners
  • 30% of men want to know how many people their significant other had as sexual partners

How Many Partners Is Too Much?

Everyone believes that there’s a magic number that is set as a guideline for how many lovers is too much, but there isn’t a “normal” number at all.

It turns out that quite a few people actually think that they’re number is already too high, but this is based on their own self reflection.

  • 40% of women believe that their sexual partner count is too high.
  • 21.8% of men believe that their sexual partner count is too high.

Is It Possible To Be Too ‘Conservative’ or ‘Promiscuous’?

Most of the time when talking about previous sexual partners, people focus on whether or not someone has had too many lovers.

The other side of the spectrum is crucial to observe as well since some people don’t want to be with someone that’s too conservative.

  • 30% of people ended their relationship when their partner had too many sexual partners.
    • Women say that an average of 15.2 partners is too promiscuous.
    • Men say that an average of 14 partners is too promiscuous.
  • 8% of people ended their relationship when their partner had too few sexual partners.
    • Women say that an average of 1.9 partners is too conservative.
    • Men say that an average of 2.3 partners is too conservative.

When Should You Discuss Your Sexual History With Your Partner?

In relationships that are open about their sexual past, it seems to be a big question of when they should open up about the topic.

Some people believe that it’s the best idea to open up early on so that you can discuss the possibility of STIs, and some people are too scared to talk about it.

  • Over 30% of people believe that you should talk about previous sexual partners within the first month.
  • 81% of people believe that you should talk about previous sexual partners within the first eight months.

Is It Healthy To Have Multiple Sexual Partners?

With a higher amount of sexual partners comes the greater risk of contracting and STI or other ailments.

Many people believe that this is the main reason that one should always be truthful with their sexual body count when speaking to a new partner.

  • Having 10 or more sexual partners will greatly increase your risk for a cancer diagnosis
    • Cervical cancer
    • Mouth cancer
    • Anal cancer
    • Penile cancer
    • Prostate cancer
  • Males with 20 sexual partners were at a higher risk of getting prostate cancer.

Are People With More Sexual Partners Happier?

One might think that a higher body count would mean a happier life, but a higher body count can also have a negative effect on one’s relationships.

While more sexual partners isn’t the only factor when it comes to happiness, it definitely adds or detracts for some people.

  • Couples who only sleep with their partners in their lifetime, are more likely to be happy in their marriage.
  • Women who have slept with 6-10 people are the least satisfied in their marriages.

How Many Dates Before Having Sex?

Everyone has their own personal standard for how many dates it would take before sleeping with someone, and that number varies from person to person.

One of the most obvious divisions is male versus female, but the gap might not be as big as you’d think.

  • 47.9% of people in relationships wait a few weeks before having sex .
  • 35% of people in relationships have sex either on the first date or the first few dates.
    • Men typically wait 5 dates before having sex.
    • Women typically wait 9 dates before having sex.

There may not be a perfect number when it comes to sexual partners, but each person has their limit and preferences.

The best way to find out is to simply ask and be open about it, and it looks as though quite a few people prefer to know before doing anything else with anyone.

Are Open Relationships Healthy?

Is an open marriage healthy? Are open relationships toxic? How healthy are open relationships?

It turns out that open relationships are just as healthy as monogamous relationships.

Let’s take a look at what science says:

  • US adults engaging in non-monogamous consensual relationships report the same levels of sexual satisfaction as their monogamous counterparts.
  • Open relationships appear to be as robust, healthy, and satisfactory as monogamous relationships, according to a survey of 348 people conducted through M Turk (sources below).
  • The psychological and emotional mechanisms that affect relational and sexual satisfaction are similar for both consensual non-monogamous and monogamous individuals.

What Do Psychologists Think of Open Relationships?

Ok, they show the same level of sexual satisfaction, but what do psychologists think?

  • Individuals in open marriages/relationships show the same levels of loneliness, attachment avoidance, and stress as monogamous individuals.
  • Individuals in open marriages/relationships showed a lower level of psychological stress compared to people in other types of relationships.

Very different data for one-sided non-monogamous relationships!

  • Individuals in one-sided open relationships showed higher stress levels (psychological stress, attachment avoidance) compared to people with monogamous or consensually non-monogamous relationships.
  • Individuals in one-sided non-monogamous relationships showed drug and drinking abuse in the 2 months prior to the research.

Here are the full results of the test (Hangen, Crasta, and Rogge, 2019):

Psychological distress, loneliness, and attachment avoidance were measured on a scale from 1 to 4:

  • 1= never
  • 2= rarely
  • 3= sometimes
  • 4= always

Outcomes:

  • Monogamy:
    • Attachment avoidance – 2.37
    • Loneliness – 2.31
    • Psychological distress – 2.29
    • Heavy drinking/drug use – 12.70%
  • Open Relationships
    • Attachment avoidance – 2.25
    • Loneliness – 2.34
    • Psychological distress – 2.24
    • Heavy drinking/drug use – 15.70%
  • Partially-Open Relationships
    • Attachment avoidance – 3.01
    • Loneliness – 3.04
    • Psychological distress – 2.70
    • Heavy drinking/drug use – 37.50%
  • One-sided Open Relationships
    • Attachment avoidance – 3.06
    • Loneliness – 2.79
    • Psychological distress – 2.44
    • Heavy drinking/drug use – 34.10%
  • People in open relationships display similar levels of STIs as the general population. This result was probably due to the safety measures taken.
  • STI History among Non-monogamous individuals
    • Tested for STIs – 77.5%
    • Diagnosed with an STI? – 20.1%
    • Positive for chlamydia – 10.2%
    • Positive for gonorrhea – 1.1%
    • Positive for syphilis – 1.1%
    • Positive for herpes – 3.2%
    • Positive for hepatitis – 1.1%
    • Positive for trichomoniasis – 2.2%
    • Positive for HPV – 7.0%
    • Positive for HIV – 0.5%

Are Open Couples Happier?

The previous studies showed that being in an open relationship is equivalent to being in a monogamous relationship in terms of psychological health. But what about happiness?

Does being in an open relationship bring more happiness or stress to the individual? Who is more jealous and who has a better connection?

According to the studies below it seems that monogamous couples are slightly happier.

  • People in monogamous relationships are happier than people in non-monogamous relationships. (Monogamous rated their happiness 4.45 out of 7 versus 3.99 out of 7 for non-monogamous). (Levine et al., 2018)
  • People in monogamous relationships have higher sexual satisfaction (3.62 out of 5) than people in non-exclusive relationships (3.17 out of 5). (Levine et al., 2018)
  • 50 bisexual women in open relationships revealed that their marriage somewhat improved after they started consensual non-monogamy. (Dixon, 1985)
  • 80% of women in consensual non-monogamous relationships claim their compatibility with their husbands to be excellent or good, and 76% claim to be sexually satisfied. (Avvo, 2016)

Here it gets interesting:

  • Married older men (55+) in a monogamous relationship were found to be happier than their non-monogamous counterparts. (Fleckenstein and Cox, 2015).
  • Married older women (55+) in monogamous relationships were found to be less happy than their non-monogamous counterparts. (Fleckenstein and Cox, 2015).
  • Monogamously married men were reported to be happier than men in open marriages, while monogamous married women were reported to be less happy than women in open marriages. (Fleckenstein and Cox, 2015).
  • Happiness in marriage: 1 = Not Too Happy, 2 = Pretty Happy, 3 = Very Happy.
    • Open relationships/marriages
      • Total – 2.52 (Pretty Happy)
      • Males – 2.50 (Pretty Happy)
      • Females – 2.56 (Pretty Happy)
    • General public
      • Total – 2.59 (Pretty Happy)
      • Males – 2.66 (Pretty Happy)
      • Females – 2.53 (Pretty Happy)

(Fleckenstein and Cox, 2015)

What is the Surprising Truth About Open Marriages?

  • Monogamously married men were reported to be happier than men in open marriages, while monogamous married women were reported to be less happy than non-monogamous women in open marriages.
  • According to a study published in 2019, non-monogamous consensual couples live under the same roof more often than monogamous couples.
  • Older people (55+) in open relationships reported a higher level of happiness than the general population.

What Are the Risks of an Open Relationship?

Is there jealousy in an open relationship? What are the risks?

One risk of being in a non-monogamous relationship is the safety factor. After all, engaging with multiple sexual partners increases the risk of STIs.

  • Swingers have the highest rate of STIs compared to the general public according to a study.

But it turns out that individuals in non-exclusive relationships are more careful than individuals in monogamous relationships.

Here’s what the data says:

  • Non-monogamous individuals are more likely to use condoms and test for STIs than monogamous individuals. (Levine et al., 2018)

Full data about STI testing and condom usage organized by relationship type over the previous 6 months:

  • 7% of monogamous individuals had an STI test.
  • 17% of open-relationship individuals had an STI test.
  • 14% of non-consensual non-monogamy individuals (cheating) had an STI test.

HIV test (previous 6 months):

  • 8% of monogamous individuals had an HIV test
  • 16% of open-relationship individuals had an HIV test
  • 15% of non-consensual non-monogamy individuals (cheating) had an HIV test

Condom usage vaginal sex (previous 6 months):

  • 1.46 out 10 times monogamous individuals used a condom
  • 3.43 out of 10 times open-relationship individuals used a condom
  • 1.94 out of 10 times cheating individuals (NCNM) used a condom

Condom usage anal sex (previous 6 months):

  • 1.78 out 10 times monogamous individuals used a condom
  • 4.60 out of 10 times open-relationship individuals used a condom
  • 1.23 out of 10 times cheating individuals (NCNM) used a condom

NCNM = Non Consensual Non Monogamous.

(Levine et al., 2018)

What Are the Disadvantages of an Open Marriage?

What might be the cons of having an open marriage? What are the disadvantages of open relationships?

There are a lot of opinions about open relationships both for and against them. In this section, we will take a look at the risks and benefits of open relationships.

  • 80% of people in open relationships face jealousy. (Wilkie, 2020)
  • Jealousy leads to frustration, dissatisfaction, and even abusive behavior. (Doll, 2021)
  • Disadvantages of open relationships and open marriages:
    • High risk of jealousy, stress, mental health, and self-esteem issues
    • Emotional pain by knowing your partner is spending intimate time with someone else
    • Chance of developing a loss of libido or an addiction to sex
    • Higher risk of contracting an STI
    • Risk of pregnancy by a secondary partner

(Fournier, 2021)

How Many Partners Do They Have?

  • Non-monogamous men and women were also more likely to have concurrent partners during the same period. (Lehmiller, 2015)
  • Non-monogamous US adults have had an average of 3.24 sexual partners in the previous 6 months compared to 0.61 of their monogamous counterparts.

As expected people in non-monogamous relationships (non-exclusive relationships) have more sexual partners than people in monogamous relationships.

Let’s find out more:

  • Adults in open relationships (non-exclusive consensual relationships) reported an average of 6.41 lifetime partners compared to monogamous persons, who had an average of 3.8 sexual partners in their lifetime. Note that the standard deviation was high for both groups, which means the data is very spread out (above or below the average). (Lehmiller, 2015)
  • Married individuals in open marriages have been with an average of 3.37 sexual partners versus 0.86 of the general public (all married individuals).
  • Women in open relationships had sex with an average of 3.08 partners compared to 0.49 average of women in the general public.
  • Men in open relationships had sex with an average of 3.37 partners compared to the 0.77 average of men in the general public.
  • Divorced people in open relationships had sex with an average of 3.22 partners compared to the 0.56 average of men in the general public.

Why Are People Against Open Marriages?

We know well that some people are pro and some are against open marriages. This often comes down to a moral issue and prejudice.

But let’s see what the studies say:

  • 49% of US adults say if they were single they would never date a married person
  • 40% of US men say they would never date a married woman
  • 59% of US women say they would never date a married men
  • 56% of US adults are against open marriages
  • 64% of American women are against open marriages and relationships
  • 47% of American men are against open marriages and relationships
  • People in the south region of the USA are the most against them
    • South region – 60% of people are against open relationships
    • Midwest region – 58% of people are against open relationships
    • West region – 53% of people are against open relationships
    • Northeast region – 49% of people are against open relationships
  • 69% of single US adults over 50 years old are morally against open relationships

(Avvo, 2016)

The majority of people are against open relationships but why? Here’s the data according to one worldwide survey. (Conley et al.)

  • The main reasons against open relationships are jealousy, moral inferiority, and the risks of STIs.
  • Participants were asked to rate the reasons why they believed a monogamous relationship is better. Here’s what they found:
    • Monogamous relationships build trust – 3.00
    • They provide connection and closeness – 2.95
    • It’s socially acceptable in our society – 2.90
    • They promote a sense of respect – 2.78
    • You can rely on them – 2.76
    • They increase physical safety – 2.58
    • Provides stability to those involved in the relationship – 2.54
    • Prevents jealousy – 2.53
    • Is morally superior to other relationships – 2.30
    • Prevents the spread of STDs/STIs – 2.12

Is it adultery in an open marriage?

Yes, and it’s illegal in 18 USA states (Wisconsin, Kansas, New York, Idaho, Arizona, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Georgia, South Carolina, North Dakota, Illinois, Utah, Virginia, Minnesota, Florida, Massachusetts, and Alabama). These 18 states have Adultery laws, which you break if you’re married and have sex with another person other than your spouse.

6 USA states (Illinois, Mississippi, Idaho, Utah, Massachusetts, and South Carolina) even have Fornication laws, which make sex outside marriage illegal.

None of the two above are enforced, so don’t worry young people reading this before a date, you will be fine.
