Sites like Facebook have been used for dating; which may be insecure.

People get conned-of money and expensive gadgets which are emotionally and physically draining.

Social life is slowly drifting away; people no longer value their time with friends and loved ones.

Three-quarter of these dates ends up as the worst dating experiences.

Online dating allows you to choose the kind of person who matches your taste; saving you from the pain of sitting next to someone annoying.

They forget everyone needs a life partner and getting an appropriate one requires enough time.

Dating sites have come in to make things easier for people busy chasing their careers to find a suitable life partner.

As was the case in previous Pew Research Center surveys of online dating, college graduates and the relatively affluent are especially likely to know people who use online dating or to know people who have entered into a relationship that began online.

Nearly six-in-ten college graduates (58%) know someone who uses online dating, and nearly half (46%) know someone who has entered into a marriage or long-term partnership with someone they met via online dating.

Most people who use online dating sites fear being rejected in actual life.

These sites are a safe haven for persons who fear rejection, and if any occurs, it does not hurt as much as an actual rejection.

You might end up kissing all manners of frogs and toads before you get your 'butterfly'.

This may take you a whole year, or you might never get anyone. Online sites give one a chance to learn from the person they are pursuing.

Fully 22% of 18- to 24-year-olds now report using mobile dating apps, a more than fourfold increase from the 5% who reported using dating apps in 2013.
