Just 36 per cent of users looking for love via mobile romance services are women.

Valentine's Day 2013 saw that mobile has become increasingly sexy, with 52 per cent of gifts for the day bought via devices, while a number of themed apps were released.

And speaking of apps, Flurry examined the top 20 mobile dating apps, which pulled in a combined 17m active users and 2.1bn sessions in January, to find that just 36 per cent of users are female as the 64 per cent of males prowling the platforms secure the lion's share.

Meanwhile, dating via Android means you're even more likely to encounter blokes as the figures spike to 66 per cent, compared to 55 per cent of guys looking for love via iOS.

Interestingly, 25-34 year olds are more likely to look for love from their smartphones and tablets, while 18-24 year olds are just slightly behind. Dating app users open the service around eight times a week for 71 second sessions, while users of apps for gay men are seemingly more horny with an average of 22 weekly opens and 96 second sessions.
