from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.Likewise, evaluating a dating site before using it is essential, and it will bring you that much closer to finding a good match.
The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
Simply considered as online meeting people, it makes a ton of sense.
It was originally a service called Just Say Hi, but the site transitioned to Mingle2 in 2008 and now works with many populations of singles.
OKCupid is one of the most popular dating sites and is free to sign up initially.
But is this a positive development or something to be concerned about?
