I know several people who've met spouses or long-term loves through online dating, and that's rad. When you’re overwhelmed with a tightly packed work schedule or just don’t have many single friends to go out with, dating can be hard. So naturally, an online dating site could potentially be the missing puzzle piece in your search for love in a busy life.
Both kinds are popular, so you can’t go just by that.
Even Tinder, despite its reputation for attracting users seeking causal romance, may deserve a more open mind.
“It's a myth that some sites are better for relationships while others are more for hookups,” says Manfredi.
Let me preface this with the fact that I have nothing against online dating.
Online dating is a great way for busy or introverted people, or those with weird schedules, or just those who want to meet new people outside their current circle and local haunts, to find romance or a hookup or a husband or wife or friend with benefits.
