Yesterday, a study revealed online daters are more likely to end up in a happy marriage than those who meet randomly.
I agree with the psychologists’ view that it’s because there’s a higher motivation to find love among internet daters.
There’s a lot that’s right about online dating. It’s time efficient – simply go online in the comfort of your own home and view hundreds of potential partners on any number of dating websites catering for every possible taste. And it’s convenient – you can narrow the search for a partner by listing what you will and won’t put up with.
But the biggest advantage of online dating is also the biggest disadvantage. On the upside, it means the people you meet are likely to be more compatible with you than some random guy you meet in a bar who you know nothing about.
