In fact, 27 percent of young Millennials ages 18 to 24 use online dating compared to just 10 percent in 2013, says the Pew Research Center.
Even older singles are getting in on the action; 12 percent of 55- to 64-year-olds have used an online dating site.
Lyne, a nurse at Seattle's Swedish Medical Center, has three daughters, ages 12, 10, and 7.
According to probable cause documents, Charlton told detectives that he and Lyne had been dating for about a month and that he had spent nights at her home on previous occasions.
