Millennials are spending an astonishing 10 hours a week on dating apps, new research has revealed.

Dating app Badoo commissioned a study of 5,000 18 to 30 year-olds to investigate modern dating trends, and found a large chunk of young people are turning to their phones in pursuit of love, with blokes the most hooked.

Men were found to spend 85 minutes a day on dating apps, averaging 9.7 minutes each session, while women spend 79 minutes a day on dating apps, typically browsing for 7.6 minutes each session to find a potential suitor.

According to the study, women were found to log on to dating apps a staggering 10 times a day, with men falling slightly behind at 9 times each day.

Interestingly, 16 per cent of millennials also have their age bands set higher in order to find an older date.

And it turns out our thumbs are the busiest on a Sunday around 7pm, when most people log on to check for dating matches.
