There are 15 men and 15 women who have more success than anyone else in online dating, according to recent data from the Grade, a dating app thats basically Tinder without being called Tinder.

The Grade broke down its findings by both men and women based on how many right swipes which allow potential partners to connect in a message the names received through the app.

Leading the way for women was Brianna, who was given the right swipe 70 percent of the time. She was accompanied by Erika, Lexi, Brooke and Vanessa in the top five, according to the Grade.

For men, Brett led the way with 24 percent, with Tyler, Corey, Andy and Noah rounding out the top five, according to the Grade.

Online dating has almost become a norm in the dating world. According to the Pew Research Center, more than 20 percent of people ages 25 to 34 have used online dating websites, with 17 percent of those ages 35 to 44 doing the same.

And most people are onboard with finding a spouse online, according to Pew. In 2013, 59 percent of Americans felt online dating was a good way to meet someone.

In fact, 5 percent of Americans in a marriage or committed relationship met their partner through online dating.

While thats a relatively low number, a 2013 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that married couples who met online had higher marriage satisfaction and lower divorce rates, according to The Huffington Post.

To find this, researchers surveyed more than 20,000 respondents about dating, with 35 percent of them having met their spouses through social media, chat rooms, and e-mail, among other online venues, The Huffington Post reported. The study found 8 percent of couples who met offline got divorced, where as 6 percent of those who met online got divorced.

"What is clear from this research is that a surprising number of Americans now meet their spouse online," the study said. "Meeting a spouse online is, on average, associated with slightly higher marital satisfaction and lower rates of marital break-up than meeting a spouse through traditional (offline) venues."
