ABSTRACT. Empirical research provides mixed results regarding self-presentation and interaction on romance social media platforms. Using and replicating data from GlobalWebIndex and Pew Research Center, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the demographics of dating app users (%), U.S. adults who are married, living with a partner, or in some other committed relationship met their spouse/partner online (%), and Internet users who agree that online dating is a good way to meet people/online dating allows people to find a better match/people who use online dating sites are desperate/online dating keeps people from settling down (%). Data were analyzed using structural equation modeling.

Keywords: self-presentation; interaction; romance social media platform; dating
