As of 2018, there were approximately three million single-person households in the Netherlands.
How many of these households were actively dating online is unknown.
As humans societies have evolved from hunter-gatherers into civilized societies, there have been substantial changes in relations between people, with perhaps one of a few remaining biological constants being that both adult women and men must have sexual intercourse for human procreation to happen.
Whether this interest stems from finding true love or other reasons, the survey does not mention.
Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship.
During the second half of 2017, however, roughly 17 percent of Dutch internet users said they visited an online dating website, service or app.
Users aged 16 to 24 years did this the most: approximately 22 percent of all users in this age group indicated they did so.
