And they found that compatibility was greater in partners after they had added those online-dating connections to that society.
Earlier studies — in which real people were surveyed — have found relationships that begin online tend to have an advantage over those that began offline.
Plus, marriages that began online were less likely to end in separation or divorce.
(That study was funded by e Harmony.com, but one of the study authors told Market Watch that it was overseen by independent statisticians.) Another study, published in the journal Sociological Science in 2017, found that heterosexual couples who met online made a quicker transition to marriage than couples who met offline.
For some reason, friends come to me frequently with dating disasters or relationship issues.
Sometimes I think it’s because I’ve probably experienced the worst of relationships but also the best one with my husband.
One friend had acquired a stalker after passing over his mobile number and the other had been on numerous sites for years and just didn’t have any luck.
So I decided to take it upon myself to do some in-depth research into the online dating industry and was quite shocked with what I found.
We put each member through brief verification checks, and we only want genuine people on our site, which is why were growing organically without any purchased databases.
Once a member is accepted, they have three packages to choose from to suit their lifestyle.
The more research I did, the more I could see a huge gap in such a saturated industry.
