Internet connectivity has become phenomenally convenient. Whereas people needed to be at home or at the office to connect to the net, it is now possible to access the internet over Wi-Fi networks as you move about.It is also currently much faster and more reliable than it earlier was.
The idea of being able to find potential partners and even sort them by age, eye colour, location, sexual orientation, etc., was a major leap for the time.
However, because very few people even had an idea what the internet was, the usage of online dating was somewhat limited to computer geeks.
When users browse for potential dates, they first look at pictures to see if they can find any they like before focusing on anything else.
This weighs in heavily if the person is looking for a short term non-committed relationship.
In yesterday’s setting, resorting to the internet to find a partner was a thing to be ashamed of. Today, more people are beginning to accept these means of starting a relationship.
