It seems like everyone's looking for love online ... A few short years ago, we had to put some actual effort into dating and finding love. We connected with friends and headed out on the town/to the bar/to the game.
But when it comes to love, all technology does is leave a wake of emotional destruction, disconnection, and false positives.
highlights how Tinder has signaled a “dating apocalypse” because it doesn’t promote actual “dating” — it promotes hookups based on physical appearance.
But the questions feeding these algorithms are highly suspect.
If this is all so fantastic, why do I receive hundreds of messages every week asking why he didn't call, why she lied about being married, why he pretended to love her and then disappeared, and much, much more?Everyone seems to know someone who knows someone who is getting married to their online sweetheart.But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.What's needed to evaluate online dating success is information from a source that doesn't have a vested interest in the outcome, like the recent study from the Association for Psychological Science which discusses the notion that, although people are using online dating sites, the way people actually found spouses over the last several years remains largely unchanged.According to the study findings, the most common place to meet a spouse is at work or at school (38 percent).
Meeting someone online is now commonplace, a reflection of how we as a culture now socialize, not a feather in the cap of the online dating industry.
