Do online dating work
To be honest, I'm a skeptic when it comes to online dating.Am I supposed to believe I can find "The One" on an app like Tinder? I spent the past few months examining a range of studies on online dating and marriage to see what I could find. According to online dating literature, dating services can't really improve relationship outcomes.
The sheer number of singles who use online dating services has already improved dating prospects. With so many singles online -- 11 percent of the US population as of 2013 to be exact -- the probability of meeting someone and developing a successful relationship has increased.So I think it's both the medium and it's the scale.And a matchmaker only knows so many people, but there are eight million or ten million users on e Harmony." Online dating sites inherently attract singles who are seeking relationships; and with the expansive number of users, even on the basis of chance, these sites will see a large number of successful relationship formations.Christian Rudder, the co-founder of the popular Ok Cupid, experimented on the users of his site to explore the influence of perception.In his experiment, he took bad matches, those who matched by 30 percent, and told them that they matched by 90 percent.
