India and Pakistan have some of the largest numbers of enthusiasts for online dating, a new poll has revealed.
The BBC World Service global poll surveyed close to 11,000 Internet users in 19 countries, reports the New York Daily News.
And it showed that 30 percent Web users aren't looking online for bargains or jobs. In fact, they have romance in mind, and are surfing the Internet for a boyfriend or girlfriend.
According to the poll, 59 percent of Indians and 60 percent of Pakistanis are using the Internet to track down a potential partner.
The research, conducted by polling firm GlobeScan, showed that the urge to cyberdate isn't quite as strong among other countries.
It revealed that 21 percent of Americans use the Internet for finding a partner, as do 16 percent of South Koreans, 28 percent of Brits and 27 percent of the French.
