You’ve heard this before: Fewer Millennials are in long-term, committed relationships than any generation past.

According to Pew Research Center, 59 percent of adults ages 18 to 29 were married in 1960, while only 20 percent of adults that age were in 2011.

So for those of us who aren’t married and aren’t having prolific sex, what we doing? By producing a surplus of options, online dating has ironically yielded romantic standstills.

Speed daters questioned about their relationship preferences usually prove themselves wrong just minutes later at the live event.

Boston University professor Donna Freitas laments to the New York Times, “Young people today don’t know how to get out of [the] hookup culture.” However, the problem isn’t so much that we don’t know how to stop having sex, but that we don’t even know how to start meeting up.

Case in point: online dating frequently never progresses offline.

Pew surveys reveal that a third of online daters have never actually gone out with someone they met online.

And, despite common usage among Millennials (Tinder boasts 26 million matches a day), a mere 8 percent of taken 18 to 29 year olds met their partner online.
