How long has internet dating been around
Once considered a realm inhabited only by the socially awkward, online dating is now just another tool in the toolbox, no matter whether you’re looking for a hook-up or your soulmate.....
What I learned from carrying out an interview of a female and the interview of a male trying to dig into this intriguing subject was that using the Internet for dating is equally painful for men and for women, but for very different reasons.
But what is going to make a potential hook-up banish you into the abyss of the left swipe?
According to a new study by Tinder, wearing glasses in your profile photos will reduce your chances of a right swipe. Instead of having specs appeal, wearing glasses could reduce the chances of finding ‘true love’ by 12 per cent, which is a pretty substantial percentage for something we had never really considered before.
For some it might mean little more than a glorified reworking of the market.
For others, it may be a powerful organizing ideal (such as those concerned with advancing the communitarian agenda).
