  • In the Dating Scene and Not Liking It? Here's What You Should Know

    If you are single and fed up with the dating scene in America, you're not alone. A whopping 55 percent of U.S. singles say they have no active interest in seeking a romantic partner, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project.

    Of the people who are single and looking (just 16 percent of singles, or 7 percent of the adult population), most report a lackluster dating life, at best. The Pew Project found:
    • 47% of singles said there were very few single people in their town they'd be interested in dating
    • 55% of singles looking for love said it was difficult to meet people
    • 10% said they didn't know much about the local singles scene

    What's more, only a fraction of singles are actively dating:
    • 36% had been on no dates in the previous three months
    • 13% had been one date
    • 22% had been on two to four dates
    • 25% had been on five or more dates

    To Be Or Not to Be Single

    It s true that studies have found a health and happiness advantage for people in relationships. One such study, by Cornell University researchers, found that people who are married report the highest levels of well-being -- regardless of whether their marriage is a happy one or not.

    Next on the happiness scale were people who cohabit, followed by those in relationships, then those in casual relationships, and, lastly, singles (who reported the lowest levels of well-being).

    "Some commitment appears to be good, but more commitment appears to be even better," said Claire Kamp Dush, a postdoctoral fellow with the Evolving Family Theme Project of the Institute for the Social Sciences at Cornell University.

    However, a growing number of people are actively choosing to be single, and are thrilled to be flying solo. Echoing this, while the majority of households used to be composed of married couples with children as recently as 1990, now the majority hold people living alone, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

    And, according to a UK survey of more than 1,000 singles between the ages of 25 and 54:
    • 82 percent said that being single gave them an opportunity to try new life experiences.
    • 89 percent said that traveling alone boosted their confidence and allowed them to be more spontaneous and adventurous.
    • 83 percent said that having a good career was more important to them than to married or cohabiting people.
