According to recent UK Online Dating Statistics, 1 in 5 relationships in Great Britain now start online and with a study published by a leading matchmaking website suggesting that by 2031 that figure could well be 1 in 2 it is apparent that most of the stigma surrounding online dating has dissipated.
We use technology in almost every other aspect of our lives, so why not harness the immensity of the World Wide Web when looking for love?
By almost any measure, Internet dating is ubiquitous. Per an op-ed piece in The New York Times, over one-third of couples who married in the last few years met online.
And then there’s the anecdotal evidence: just about everyone knows a couple who met on or its equivalent.
Most services also encourage members to add photos or videos to their profile.
