By the year 2000, the ability to search for and find other singles had become too old. To this end, new computer programs were developed for the dating industry.These algorithms made it possible for dating platforms to suggest compatible partners using the information provided by the users.Part of the reason online dating has become so accepted and popular is that people have taken huge chunks of their lives online.
This ties in with the shift towards spending less time on the internet and quickly moving to real world interactions.
In yesterday’s setting, resorting to the internet to find a partner was a thing to be ashamed of. Today, more people are beginning to accept these means of starting a relationship.
Although it’s now more popular among people aged 35 and below, online dating and chat rooms are being used by people across all ages from young singles to older divorced or widowed individuals.
People no longer have to be home, at the office, or at an internet café to try their luck with finding a partner.
But the most obvious expression of people's tendency to use quicker and more efficient tools is the rise of mobile dating apps.
