Fully 43% of adults (87 million people) say they are single. century with a swing towards marriage in the 1950s and 1960s.

Yet among the uncommitted, relatively few say they are in the market for relationships.

Among all singles, just 16% say they are currently looking for a romantic partner. Some 55% of singles report no active interest in seeking a romantic partner.

Perhaps not surprisingly, finding suitable partners is easier in urban areas than in suburban areas, and far easier than in rural areas.

As shown in the table, 57% of city dwellers who are looking for dates say there is plenty of dating potential in their communities compared with 38% of date-seeking suburbanites and only 21% of date seekers residing in rural settings.

Moreover, when asked to describe the dating possibilities where they live, a plurality, 47%, said there were very few single people in their town they would be interested in dating.

Another 41% said there were lots of single people in their town that seemed interesting but 10% said they didn’t know much about the local singles scene.

Only 16% of single Americans say they are hunting for a partner.

That group represents 7% of the entire adult population.

No doubt many reasons underlie the relatively small size of the active dating population.

One suggested by this survey’s findings is the type of community in which singles live.

While a sizable segment of the population is single, about a quarter of unmarried Americans (26% or about 23 million adults) say they are in committed romantic relationships.
