The Supreme Court s 2015 ruling on same-sex marriage changed the course of history, but according to a new survey, it didn t have much impact on how single LGBTQ people view marriage.

Match.com found that 61 percent of LGBTQ singles said that last year s SCOTUS decision has no effect on their attitude toward marriage whatsoever.

That s just one of many revelations found in LGBTQ in America, which Match is touting as the largest nationally-representative study of American singles who identify as LGBTQ and was produced in association with Dr. Justin R. Garcia, an evolutionary biologist and gender studies professor at Indiana University s Kinsey Institute.

Among the other findings in the survey, which polled over 1,000 LGBTQ singles between the ages of 18 and 70-plus: 74 percent said their family would support them in a same-sex marriage.

Fifty-two percent of lesbians said they want kids, compared to 36 percent of gay men.

Mobile apps, unsurprisingly, are the new matchmakers, with 56 percent of respondents saying they ve dated someone they ve met online.
