Today, online dating has said goodbye to its negative stigma and has increasingly become both more acceptable and successful in our dating culture.
A few factors to its success include an increase in mobile dating apps, accessibility to the Internet and, well, the fact that some 54 million Americans are single.
Pros: Access to more people and more types of people.
The most obvious benefit of these websites is that they provide easy access to thousands of potential dates.
And there are rare stories of couples surviving, but that might be propaganda spread to encourage the rest of us to keep giving it a try. It’s free and I can always stop if it doesn’t suit me.
I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.
The last time I dated there was no texting, and social media wasn’t really a thing.
Dating went like this: you met someone, they asked for your number, they had to call you on the phone, and you went out on a date. I did not get asked out on one date or meet one person who expressed any interest at all.
