I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.
The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.
e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.
And for people who have no interest in serious dating and just want to find people to hook up with?
Online is a much better way to accomplish that too.
Meetups Meetups can be a great thing, because you find them online, but you’re going to actually meet women in real life.
This means that you don’t have to spend time flirting and bantering online — you can skip to doing that in real life.Meetups are online dating that cuts out the middle man, going directly to the part where the two of you are getting to know each other up close and in person.What’s more, because they often center around some kind of shared interest, they allow you to meet women that you already have something in common with.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.So in 2030, I think we’ll be somewhere very different, and I think today’s nine-year-olds will have really incredible ways of finding love when they’re 25.
