As a singleton in the city, I’ve had a plethora of strange, funny, weird and creepy experiences trying to meet my match. From organic encounters, to blind dates scheduled by meddlesome friends; heck, I’ve even gone speed dating.
Eventually, out of sheer morbid curiosity (I’m not lonely, I have a cat), I ventured into the mysterious world of online dating through Tinder. I know, right? But I found myself fascinated by the thought of extreme matchmaking and enthralled by the statistics. More and more couples are meeting online and in the US, it’s said to have taken off so well that 1 in every 4 couples meet online, without significant impact on separation and divorce rates. So, it’s relatively safe to say that it has become a safe(ish) way of finding a compatible partner.
