While dating online used to be viewed as strange and risky, it has now become the dating scene norm. Online dating platforms have dominated the internet and app stores and are reporting millions of downloads every year. Especially if you are a part of the younger generations, chances are that you met your partner or significant other online. It seems that the days of standing awkwardly at the bar hoping to make eye-contact with someone you find attractive are becoming a thing of the past.
One of the obvious benefits of signing up for a dating app or developing an online dating profile is that you are putting a significant light on your singleness and your intentions. It’s challenging trying to navigate your daily world and find potential people who you could be dating. Unless you have a large network of friends who can help you find someone who may have common interests, values, and goals, then finding someone ‘IRL’ is hard.

The online dating scene is thriving at the moment because it offers singles something the physical world does not: a quick insight into someone’s personality. Sure, you can wear particular graphic tees, and rock certain styles, have tattoos, or other markers to indicate things about yourself, but otherwise the appearance of someone provides limited information about them. Making eye contact and having that moment where you decide you are both attracted to one another doesn’t provide much significant insight either. Does that person just want sex or are they looking for something serious? Chances are a fellow online dating user will put a little information into their bio spot, which gives you the upper-hand in deciding whether or not you are interested.
