Internet dating vs traditional dating
While many people prefer online dating to the tradition dating approach, is online dating a safe alternative to the traditional way of meeting potential romantic life partners?
Online dating has become one the fastest growing alternative techniques of dating. Gregory Forge, “ Over 60 percent of all internet users spend about two or more hours each day looking for romance.”(Forge, 135) In North American, about 10 to 30 million people have created an online dating profile.(Forge, 138).
But no matter how long you’ve had a dating life, online dating can still feel very new when you get started.
The traditional dating process usually involves a small pool of potential matches made up of locals, colleagues and friends of friends.
There’s no doubt single people are willing to try anything to find their a romantic partner. Many people prefer online dating, because they can quickly search through millions of available candidates.
And then from the collection of potential candidates, a person can narrow their search to people who meet their specific criteria.
Now only can you set your filters but online dating sites often use matching algorithms to suggest other members who could be good matches for you.
