Connecticut ranks first in the U.S. for dating app downloads

Posted by John Mathewson on February 26, 2015

These days, it is not uncommon to find yourself on dating apps or other forms of social media dedicated to helping you find a special someone. The name "Tinder" has become pretty synonymous with online meetings over just the last few months alone.

If you are a resident in the state of Connecticut, chances are you use a social media dating app on a regular basis. According to AVG Technologies' ranking of the entire United States, Connecticut ranks first in dating app downloads such as Tinder, Match and OKCupid.

This means that, throughout the entirely of 2014, there were more people per capita in Connecticut with an online dating app downloaded to their smartphone than any other state in the country. Rounding out the top five were Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Illinois.

Although there has been an increase in digital dating in the United States, the country itself does not rank as the top nation across the globe. According to AVG Technologies, the U.S. is currently fourth in dating app popularity, falling behind the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. Argentina rounds out the top five in this international ranking.

This information is totally anonymous, as AVG Technologies only looked at aggregate data and not into anything else about the people using these apps. This new information also does not include those people who downloaded any of these dating apps and then later decided to delete them off of their smartphones.
