Dating in later life is a serious matter, and comes freighted with worries. What if the person I ask out for a date doesn’t show up? There is no way to avoid these questions, but you shouldn't let them stop you. This is the best option if you are looking for companionship, but may want it to blossom into love.
Between 20, the number of people using online dating sites doubled, from 20 million to 40 million, and about one third of America’s single people participated in some sort of online dating last year.
But despite these numbers, it’s unclear if online dating is any more effective than, or really any different from, meeting someone offline.
This is not a faceless corporation but instead a kind community with a leader passionate about improving the lot of its users.
But as Valentine's Day approaches, the holiday is often bittersweet for more than a few.
With the breakdown of families, religious affiliations and other social structures that once ensured connection to others, a romantic partner is currently viewed as the primary way to counteract isolation.
Without one, this holiday can feel like a very long 24 hours.
With some goading from a friend — who somehow convinced me that the stigma against online dating was no more — I joined Ok Cupid and started scanning the thousands of matches that popped up on my screen.
Apparently, I wasn’t alone in my Valentine’s Day depression-induced hunt for Prince Charming.
In many ways, online dating resembles offline dating — the resulting relationships are no different. So why do so many millions turn to the Web to find love?
