It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work.
Statistics suggest that about 1 in 5 relationships begin online nowadays.Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and conventional wisdom both suggest that love is a fundamental human need. A survey conducted in 2013 found that 77% of people considered it “very important” to have their smartphones with them at all times.Most people meet their significant others through their social circles or work/school functions. In the search for a potential date, more and more people are switching to less traditional methods. With the rise and rise of apps like Tinder (and the various copycat models) who could blame them.While most people would agree that on average men are more eager for sex than women, it seems that many men make the assumption that if a woman has an online dating presence, she’s interested in sleeping with relative strangers.Online dating does represent the convenience of being able to meet others that you possibly never would have otherwise, but women should be aware that they probably will receive rude/disgusting messages from horny guys, sexual propositions/requests, dick-pics, and a lot of creepy vibes.The popularity of online dating is being driven by several things but a major factor is time.Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.Over 20% of women posted photos of their younger selves. Their most common lies revolved around their financial situation, specifically, about having a better job (financially) than they actually do.More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the tactic was also employed by nearly a third of women.
