Pretty big dating
from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.
Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.
And for people who have no interest in serious dating and just want to find people to hook up with?
Online is a much better way to accomplish that too.
The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.
I have a friend that goes on two or three first dates every week with people he already knows are potentially good personality and physical matches for him—how you find the right person, and good luck keeping up with him meeting people the old-fashioned way.
Nothing brings people together like shared hatred, and it turns where you live has a pretty big impact on what you absolutely despise.
The dating app Hater, which connects people based on stuff they can't stand, used info from their users to figure out what topics and things people in each state hate the most. Ok, so is it just us or are most of these head-scratchers?
