Internet dating revenue
But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.
The dating site's algorithm auto-magically pairs you up with like-minded people who have similar interests, hobbies, life goals... And with mobile apps like Tinder, it’s all based on proximity and the “first sight”phenomenon.
Here's an excerpt from an article on : "A recent study funded by [a major dating website] suggests that as many as 35 percent of Americans now meet their spouses online.But with the advent of technology, "dating" doesn't exist anymore.In today’s technology-centric world — where everyone’s phone seems surgically attached to their hand — dating websites and apps are how modern singles find other singles.According to the study findings, the most common place to meet a spouse is at work or at school (38 percent)."Through a friend or family member" came in second (27 percent), while "on an online dating site" came in third (17 percent) — hardly the "35 percent of Americans" as claimed in the earlier study.
