The virtual world can be fun indeed, but it has clear limitations -- the romantic relationships you make online must be brought into the real world in order to be fully rewarding.Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.
How in the world are you supposed to discover your TRUE match when what is being put out there isn't true?
