Many people who haven’t found their significant other turn to dating apps to possibly find a partner. Despite its sometimes questionable image, online dating isn’t all about casual sex and promiscuity.

According to a recent YouGov poll, the most cited reason to use Tinder or any other dating app/website among Americans is finding an exclusive romantic partner. In fact every second respondent is looking for something serious online, while only 23 percent are chasing after more casual acquaintances.

According to YouGov’s findings, 32 percent of Americans have used a dating app at some point, with that share rising to 39 percent and 44 percent for Gen Xers and Millennials, respectively.
