Everyone Dates Online It's time to get over your aversion to meeting people through the Internet.In 2005, only 44 percent of Americans thought online dating was a "good way to meet people," according to a study by the Pew Research Center.
So much so that a discussion about it has been started on Advice. No more “I live life to the fullest,” “I like to paint the town red,” “I’m drama free,” “I like to take things slow,” or “I’m looking for my best friend.” Try and show a little originality.Natural poses are the way to go — ideally in around six total profile photos.Of course, most people don't end up hiring a photographer.Compare that to 2013, when a majority of Americans (54 percent) were onboard with meeting a potential partner on the Web.
Conclusion: Online dating is going increasingly mainstream.
But that doesn't mean everyone is willing to share their profiles with friends.
