Certainly the stigma which was attached to internet dating a few years ago seems to have passed.
(University of Bath Study, 2005) Statistics show that internet dating is big business with leading sites such as Yahoo Personals and drawing in 4.9 million visitors and 4.2 million visitors respectively in January 2004 alone.
(Blazier, 2004) So just how successful is internet dating as a means of meeting new people?
I did my own research on people and chatted online within a site to see if we had things in common.
If we had a few things in common, we exchanged numbers, texted for a while, eventually spoke on the phone and if things felt right, we’d meet in a public place to talk. I am currently with a man I met online and we have been together for two years! But there is always the thought that if this doesn’t work out, how long will it take either of us to jump right back online to find the next possible love connection?
Last November 2013 I saw his profile on a dating site.
My husband had died four years ago and his wife died 11 years ago. I questioned him about his continued online search as I had access to his username.
They make worse matches than just using a random site.
