The first dating website was created in 1995 with Match.com; since then, it is estimated that over a fifth of 25- to 34-year-olds met their partner online – 13% through dating apps and 9% on websites such as OkCupid or Guardian Soulmates.
So, you might think, what is the problem with dating online this is because it is meeting people through the power of a swipe and whether or not the other person finds you geometrically appealing.
Also, on dating apps, are there is the 80/20 rule; this is where 20% of the men get 80% of the action from the opposite sex due to women favoring men that are over 6 feet tall, have successful careers, make good money or doing something that makes them attractive.
Another big failure of dating apps is that a person’s photo and wage packet do not guarantee a loving or long-lasting relationship because apps and dating sites give people a purely superficial view of another person’s personality.
What makes relationships work and last is whether or not the other person has a good heart, good with money, has a similar personality, and helps with household chores.
Cooperation and birds flocking together mentality create a long-lasting bond. Your partner’s polar opposite may lead to freaky actions under the sheets, but this does not equal a long-term relationship.
I am sure we have all probably experienced a friend that fell in love with a guitar player or artist, which led to a bad breakup.
Dating websites and apps give the choices of what we want but not what we need, such as love, companionship, and stability, which can seem very dull in our day-to-day lives.
