A survey of 19,000 married people found that a third of them met their significant other via an online dating site. And those who met online reported higher levels of satisfaction in their marriages. Couples who met online were also less likely to break up or get divorced.
Why might meeting online work so well?
In part, it’s likely because people can spend a lot of time figuring out who the other person is without being swayed by stuff like looks and sexual chemistry. There’s also a certain amount of freedom the online space gives users in allowing them to safely open up to strangers. Plus, online communities like chat rooms ensure that potential mates share some common interests.
