The sample included 19,131 participants who had been married once between 20, and were asked where they met – was it online dating sites; email or instant messaging; online communities such as chat rooms or virtual reality games; or social networking sites.
Those who met on social networking sites were more likely to be younger, married more recently, and African American compared to those who met on other ways on the internet.
Having extensively used most of these sites, I will provide a basic overview of my thoughts and experiences. This site has revolutionized online dating by stripping the game to its bare animal essence: raw physical "I want to strip you naked and fuck your brains out" attraction.
Tinder makes no pretense to helping you find a "soulmate" or a "serious" connection.
Anyway, after chatting to a few of them I did ask if they were interested in meeting up, but people just don't seem to be.

On Sunday, March 12, my partner, Greta, and I had surprise visitors to Dana Point. However, after seeing them together, hearing their stories and pondering their situation, I started to think this is wonderful. Heck, she and I have known each other for 70-plus years.” I still advocate that seniors get to know each other well before making a commitment.
Phil Williams and Sue Hamlin were classmates of mine going all the way back to the fourth grade in Jackson, Michigan, where Phil, Sue and I grew up. Finally, Sue said to Phil, “If we are going to get married, why don’t you ask me? 24, one hour after Sue disembarked from an airplane from Grand Rapids—together for the second time in 50 years—they were married at the County Clerk Office in Fullerton. Finally, Phil nabs one of the prettiest and nicest girls in our high school class. However, I’m making one exception in Phil and Sue’s case.
If you are a single straight guy living in NYC, you would be doing yourself a great disservice by abstaining from online dating.
