Many different dating websites there
According to some estimates, there are over 8,000 online dating sites worldwide, and over 2,500 in the US alone.
Yes, that’s just the number of different it’s no wonder that many people find online dating overwhelming!
And if you don’t like what you see, you can always click on to the next profile – there is always another candidate just around the corner!
You would at least talk to someone before you’d go anywhere near finding out what their pet preferences were …
and you’d then use your own judgement about whether you liked them or not.
There is increasing evidence that, in face-to-face meetings, we are subconsciously picking up clues about the suitability of future partners based on a wide variety of non-verbal information.
According to some estimates, over a third of marriages in the US are now from couples who first met online.
(Interestingly, that definition of “meeting online” includes more than just online dating sites, and includes all sorts of social networks and online communication.) But for many people, there is a growing body of evidence that online dating simply doesn’t work. If you’re aged 50 or over, finding a partner online is even more complicated.
