Why do more people search for love online today than ever before?
Because a lot of people are either too busy to meet people the "regular" way, or meeting people the "regular" way isn't working. Also, it easy to get to know someone through a computer than it is in person.
It's easier and more comfortable to browse profiles from your bed or dinning room table. There is a chance to meet someone whom you probably never would have met any other way since you may not travel in the same circles. There's a large variety of folks.
If you are getting older there comes a time where you don't want to stand in a long line waiting to get into some over crowded nightclub or sit in a piano lounge looking up at the door every ten minutes to see who walks in.
Also if you are a guy you'll find more women are willing to initiate contact through a dating site with you then they would in a public place.
Online dating also is in many ways a more "pro-active" way to meet someone. It's almost like shopping. However the number one reason is probably because people are too busy or too tired to be running around attending various events in hopes of meeting someone. They'd also rather go online than to deal with another "blind date" arranged by family or friends.
I think people lead busy, stressful lives these days and just don't have time to get out to meet people. Besides, in some ways meeting someone online is safer, at least in the beginning. However, I personally would never look for love online because I wouldn't feel safe when it got to the point of actually personally meeting the individual. There are lots of con artists and criminals online, and it's impossible to know who they really are.
The internet is the answer to every question.
I think that people are looking for love online because they either don't have the time or the "appropriate" resources available to find people that they may be attracted to. I live in a fairly rural area... and if I wasn't married, I'd have no idea how to meet they kind of people I'd want to meet. The bar seen comes with it's limits and it's never a good idea what to date co-workers or other colleagues. So if you are limited in how you can meet people of your similar interests, then I can understand how people turn to online dating to full fill that need. One more thought on the subject, is that in the beginning there is a certain degree of annonimity when first searching for and even contacting the person that may be a match. This might let a person be a little more honest in what they are looking for up front. It may be harder to do so face to face...
Because the world moves so faster as it was and we have many websites though we know each other easily and meet our soul mate easily.
People want access to something that takes years of work to achieve, but they only want to spend a fraction of the time to do it.
Its the same concept behind fad diets.
People search online , because people find it easier to be in a distance relationship then in a real one. Some others don't have the time. I prefer it , because I find it less stressful and painless. Some can go wrong but not all of them. Question is , Do you plan on making it reality, and actually meeting the guy/girl you feel in love with over the Internet? But be careful with whom you choose .. They might put on a act like my ex boyfriend did. You will know when the time comes.
That's where people are at these days...online. It's e-love. More can be said online sometimes than in person.
Mostly out of convenience. They have the opportunity to potentially meet more people than they otherwise would in everyday life.
It is more difficult to meet people today. People of all ages used to go to the bars at hotels and restaurants to meet others. That has become dangerous. More divorced people are out there now. Those two reasons may have contributed to the increase in online dating interest. Almost all single people I know use dating sites
Because internet made people stuck on their couch, surf all day, and chat all day. Few people are interacting in the real world. Cyber age as they call it.
Before, there was no online dating sites! Now there is. When I first heard of online dating, I thought to myself I would have to be desperate to sign up, and thought most people on there are probably not normal. That's not the case at all. I met a lot of wonderful women, and surprisingly found people who I already knew on there. I was able to get a lot of dating experience, reconnect with women i already knew and I ended up meeting my wife on one of the sites. It was a great experience for me, and I know a lot of other people who have had good experiences as well. Word of mouth, and curiosity have a lot to do with people trying to find love online. It wasn't even an option 20 years ago.
