Number of marriages from online dating
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.
According to another recent survey of dating site users, 66 percent of U. singles used online dating to expand their dating pool.It does not help that in a recent article in The California Sunday Magazine, Tinder’s founder and chairman, Sean Rad, admitted to sexting with Snapchat users. Carbino, who scours Tinder daily, sees what others can’t: humans trying their best to connect.She is single and said she had found, and lost, love on Tinder.She “swiped right” on a photo of John in a tuxedo giving a speech at a wedding. Six months later, they bought a house together; a few months later, they were engaged.They have been married for two years now and have a 14-month-old.
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.
