Pros of technology and dating

Being able to grow and maintain your relationship offline is critical as you go through the different phases of a relationship.

Niche dating sites such as J-Date, Farmers Only, Women Behind Bars, My Lovely Parent, Uniform Dating and Date My Pet, vow to match people based on very particular specifications.

The adoption of technology has changed the way we connect and converse with others in our society and dating is no exception.

The prevalence of smart phones mean we are always contactable, social media allows others to get to know us before we have even met, and dating apps give us an abundance of choice in a suitable partner or partners.

Choosing the right person to spend the rest of your life with is one of the most important decisions you can make, and with so many fish in the sea, more singles are heading online to find their soul mate.

According to Match.com's latest Singles in America study released earlier this month, more singles are meeting prospective partners through the internet than through more traditional means.

The goal of their review was to evaluate whether online dating was 1) fundamentally different from face-to-face dating and 2) was superior.

Results of their assessment indicated that dating online was indeed different from "traditional" dating in a number of ways.

Even sites such as Match.com, Plenty of Fish, and Spark Networks' Hurry Date take their online daters offline with their special events divisions.
