Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and conventional wisdom both suggest that love is a fundamental human need. A survey conducted in 2013 found that 77% of people considered it “very important” to have their smartphones with them at all times.
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.
After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he's been betraying. Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle.
And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo. And somewhere between the teasing texts and one-night stands, what these unmarrieds all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love.
The popularity of online dating is being driven by several things but a major factor is time.
Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.
Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
It is one of the biggest dating sites with over 90 million registered users across the globe. Mingle2 is a membership service of which users pay to be a part.
It was originally a service called Just Say Hi, but the site transitioned to Mingle2 in 2008 and now works with many populations of singles.
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’.
With the popularity of sites like e Harmony, match.com, OKcupid and literally thousands of similar others, the stigma of online dating has diminished considerably in the last decade.
A simple swipe left, and that dream guy is gone forever; a simple swipe right, and he could end up a match for life!
