Then you can chat, swap numbers, meet up, get Catfished, etc. Has anyone actually ended up with someone this way?
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
Either way, as subjective as the idea is, I am quite certain that online dating does not diminish the ideal of "True Love" or "Happiness" for that matter, In fact its quicker, more effective and you spend less time finding out quirks that you would end up not liking or be the cause of arguments further down the road.
One in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app themselves, and many people now know someone else who uses online dating or who has found a spouse or long-term partner via online dating.
Academics, meanwhile, are fascinated by the data being gathered — and largely kept secret — by the dating industry.
