Specific information does more than make you sound interesting – it also gives potential dates something to write to you about.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.
The two services used by these individuals were OKCupid and Match.com, two of the largest and most popular dating websites on the Internet.
Most people meet their significant others through their social circles or work/school functions. In the search for a potential date, more and more people are switching to less traditional methods. With the rise and rise of apps like Tinder (and the various copycat models) who could blame them.
If you want to think about dating as a numbers game (and apparently many people do), you could probably swipe left/right between 10 – 100 times in the span of time that it would take you to interact with one potential date in ‘real-life’.
According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.
