The reality is that the majority of our dealings/transactions are beginning to occur online. The numbers show that its over 7 million people with active profiles on dating sites. The numbers will continue to grow and society becomes more and more driven towards mobile devices and life on the go.
I know a few people who found love online and got married. Online dating is no longer taboo, but a modern day way of finding love. I do think some people use the internet as a means to finding sex and quick booty calls, particularly on the free sites. The sites where the users are required to pay a fee tend to have more serious inquiries.
