Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
If, on the other hand, every time you open your credit card statement there's a little sum going to Match or e Harmony, it's another nudge to push you back to the computer and make sure you're getting enough bang for your buck. Rudder makes in his argument is that the user stats given out by Match and e Harmony don't take into account profiles people don't use anymore, or users who haven't paid and so can't receive messages. Free sites have the same problem – probably to an even worse degree.
And, if you’re a savvy online dater, there are ways you can get round it.
