If you want to think about dating as a numbers game (and apparently many people do), you could probably swipe left/right between 10 – 100 times in the span of time that it would take you to interact with one potential date in ‘real-life’.With the popularity of sites like e Harmony, match.com, OKcupid and literally thousands of similar others, the stigma of online dating has diminished considerably in the last decade.More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.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.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.Browsing profiles isn’t nearly as time-consuming (or daunting) as mixing with people in a social context.Statistics suggest that about 1 in 5 relationships begin online nowadays.It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
