The results in this report are based on data from telephone interviews conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International from April 17 to May 19, 2013, among a sample of 2,252 adults, age 18 and older.Telephone interviews were conducted in English and Spanish by landline (1,125) and cell phone (1,127, including 571 without a landline phone).The internet, cell phones, and social media have become key actors in the life of many American couples— the 66% of adults who are married or in committed relationships.Couples use technology in the little and large moments.Some of this is about timing— technology a decade ago was squarely in the pre-Facebook, pre-smartphone era, and just ten years into the development of the commercially popular Web.Those who were already together as a couple at the advent of a new platform or technology were a bit more likely to jump on together, as a unit, while those who begin relationships with their own existing accounts and profiles tend to continue to use them separately as individuals.
Technology in relationships is not just limited to coordination and logistics, it now encompasses even the more intimate moments.
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
