Want to Get Married?
Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate happy couples and the joy of having a partner… or to contemplate one’s singleness (or inherent lust). Yes, it can be a difficult time of people for some people especially those who aren’t happy with being perpetually single. Thankfully, however, there is a solution available thanks to the good people at Match.com who carried out a survey about online dating’s effect on the likelihood of singles getting married.
Online Dating May be the Key!
For those who want to find a spouse, online dating is a haven. So it’s not just for sex dates or one night stands… During a Single In America survey, Match discovered that 93% of people who do online dating are more likely to want marriage. This may a shocking statistic for some people, but it’s not entirely unbelievable when you take a look at the dating landscape over the last 10 years.
Consider the very beginning of traditional online dating, and then look at the rise of Tinder and the large variety of other dating apps that are out there. It is clear that there is a plethora of people out there who are looking to find "the one".
If you’ve heard the same tired spiel from your relatives every Christmas about why you’re still single, but don’t want to consider online dating, there is still good news. In 2013, the National Academy of Sciences discovered that a third of marriages in the US started with online dating. Such marriages also had less of a chance of ending up in divorce.
A distinction was also made: it looked at individuals who had organically met their partners on social media sites, as well as those who went on traditional dating sites and matchmaking agencies.
This distinction is important because it is quite surprising that people are connecting through social media. And this isn’t dating networks we’re talking about! These are sites such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Considering how much time is spend on social media as a whole, it only makes sense.
How Connections Are Happening on Social Media
Consider the following: you and someone from Singapore follow the same individual on Twitter. The person you follow then suggests that the two of you should follow one another. Several months later, you suddenly find yourself going to Singapore in order to meet your crush. Yes, it sounds outlandish, but actually there are many more people who do this. Some people even meet on Tumblr!
Consider tweets, texts and trips to Singapore… Suddenly you’re living the life with this person. This can be seen with actor Jake T. Austin. In January, he stated that he was dating a fan which he’d met through social media. So, if you don’t want to give online dating a chance then you may want to rethink it. Your next mention on Instagram or Twitter could be the person you’ve been looking for!
