According to USA Today, a new study by John Cacioppo, a psychologist and director of the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago, reports 35 percent of marriages now start online.
Today, singles are relying on the web more often to meet and mingle including online dating sites, social media, chat rooms, instant messaging, etc. As a dating coach for women over 40, here's what gets really interesting for me: After surveying more than 19,000 people who got hitched between 2005 — 2012, researchers discovered that those who found love online are slightly happier and not as likely to split up as couples who met through other methods.
Cacioppo thinks "dating sites may attract people who are serious about getting married." On the flip side, other researchers claim that since e Harmony commissioned the research, there may be a conflict of interest in coming to these conclusions.
The main take away from the new study is that more and more, people are finding love online!
The web is undeniably a results-producing resource for jump-starting your dating journey!
If you have been holding off about posting a profile or building up your social media presence, I'm hoping this news pushes you to get moving.
There is no faster, cheaper way to launch your love life then by getting online.
Eye Candy centers on tech genius Lindy, who is persuaded by her roommate to begin online dating and begins to suspect that one of her mysterious suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker.
When her friends at the elusive cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to one of Lindy’s dates.
