I am looking for any kind of data sets from online dating websites that combine demographic characteristics of users (like age, gender, ...) with data on users' activity.

I want to use these data sets in a specific context and I highly appreciate any hints that could be useful!


I find it unlikely that a dating website would share a dataset, although OKCupid Trends was one of the first good data blogs (and I'm glad they are back posting after being silent since 2011).

There was a Pew research study from 2013 - Online Dating

This data set contains questions about online dating, technology and existing relationships, and non-internet users.

(requires entering some info to download data)

Sample: n=2,252 national adults, age 18 and older, including 1,127 cell phone interviews

Interviewing dates: 04.17.2013 – 05.19.2013

The survey is quite long and the data is available in crosstab, csv, or spss formats. Included are questions and answers about internet usage, where people meet each other, usage of dating websites and apps, demographic information.
