Online dating has grown in popularity to the point where there is almost no social stigma attached to it.
Bumble is a dating app that only allows women to initiate contact in opposite-sex connections; in same-sex connections either party may initiate contact. Since 2012, Tinder has been matching singles based on their social profiles and geographic location. Both users must “swipe right” before being matched and are then able to chat within the app.
POF.com, also known as Plenty Of Fish, is an online dating site headquartered in Vancouver.
OKCupid is one of the most popular dating sites and is free to sign up initially.
It works with special algorithms that match users with potential dates.
By the numbers, Millennials and Boomers are head-to-head. While their numbers may be the same, the amorous approaches of both generations show some thought-provoking differences. Over a quarter of adults in the 45-59 range are single, according to the U. Retirement community Del Webb polled singles 50 and older, and found that 56 percent stated they are open to the idea of dating, 45 percent said they already were dating and 11 percent said they wanted to remarry.
