Internet Dating and Matchmaking
A study conducted by the Scientific Research Centre shows that in the UK women tend to use dating sites more frequently than men. In countries where online dating is popular, such as the US, Australia and Canada, figures indicate that more men than women look for love in the internet. Thanks to polished actors such as Hugh Grant and others, Englishmen have an international public perception of being charming and well-spoken romantics. This appears to have spread to dating sites as well where many are thought to not only be witty, but gifted talkers.
This can be an indication that traditional matchmaking processes, such as meeting in a bar, through friends or family members, are increasingly being rendered obsolete. Online dating is becoming vital to the time poor 21st century professional who lives mostly in the fast lane. Nowadays singles can come back home from a long day at work and still manage to go for a date, albeit a virtual one.
And thanks to the fact that many people now spend countless hours on the internet for business, as well as social purposes, online dating may be the perfect place to meet that special person. In fact, people no longer require using a computer to check their online dating profiles as they can do so through smart phones. All they have to do is ensure that their profiles are as appealing as possible and potential partners will come calling.
