Online vs traditional dating
I mean, if you’re going to date for 2 years before you get married, what difference does it make if you met at a party or on Ok Cupid?
From a purely objective point of view, it doesn’t make any sense that there’d be a difference either way.
IRL one may get a better, more accurate sense of the person.
Dating websites give you a much better opportunity to build a foundation first, before you ever go out on a date.
And the last thing I want to do is give you studies that suggest otherwise. 🙂 “The separation and divorce rates for folks who’d paired up online was much higher than their offline compatriots, and more online-founded relationships tended to end within a year after the survey.
But this Engadget synopsis of a Michigan State/Stanford study suggests that online dating leads to more break-ups than meeting in real-life. Is states that those who met on the web were more likely to date than actually marry compared to people that’d met IRL, too — by more than double.” The study doesn’t get more specific than that, so we’re left here to interpret the lack of data for ourselves, through the lens of our own biases.
