Online Dating is Changing the World

By  | 

Dating apps were once socially unacceptable and a bit creepy. But now they’re actually pretty cool, perpetuating the concept of marriage one swipe at a time. The swipe, a mindless gesture fueling a digital game, is responsible for a 33% increase in marriage since the 1990s. One third of all marriages in the U.S. include partners who met via web – “that’s more than 600,000 couples every year who would, in any other era, have remained total strangers” (Mashable).

Although some apps celebrate exclusivity, only hosting users who meet financial requirements, digital dating is breaking racial and social barriers. No longer are you limited to a particular dating pool – your options are boundless, creating a melting pot that is both progressive and experimental. “More total Tinder matches have been made than there are people on the planet” and “there are an estimated one million Tinder dates every week around the world”.
