Arizona’s top online dating apps for virtual romance.

Fact Checked by Washington Erick

As America becomes more focused on electronic communication, our social responsibilities are moving from in-person interactions to online platforms. Dating is at the forefront of this cultural change.

Each year, an increasing number of Americans are finding their significant others through online dating websites, causing the traditional idea of meeting your life partner at a bar or social gathering to become less prevalent.

To celebrate Online Romance Day on May 14th, yengols.com conducted a study to determine which states had the highest interest in online dating. Using Google Trends data from April 25, 2024 to May 2, 2024, we ranked the top 10 states based on search interest in the term “online dating.” In addition, we identified the top 5 dating apps that are popular in Arizona.
