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.Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.
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.
Bumble, for example, only allows women to message men they're interested in, and not the other way around.
Research suggests that women may be more choosy simply because of social norms about men having to initiate contact.
As many as 80% of male users who admitted to "casually" liking most profiles said they swipe right on more than half of all the women they see — and that's because they so rarely match with anyone.
Other dating apps may do a better job of stopping this vicious cycle before it starts.
Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
