It may not be copied without the written permission of Ripoff Report. from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.This is the best way to manage and repair your business reputation. Consumers want to see how a business took care of business. How those businesses take care of those complaints is what separates good businesses from the rest.Consumers love to do business with someone that can admit mistakes and state how they made improvements.But it’s not all candlelit dinners and walks on the beach.Online dating certainly helps people find potential dates, but it doesn’t always help people find good relationships.Simply considered as online meeting people, it makes a ton of sense.I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.
By allowing women to rate messages–with categories such as ‘overtly sexual’ or ‘generic’ (‘hey girl what’s up’)–the system could track this information. One third of all marriages these days came from online dating.The stigma of meeting someone over the Internet has faded.Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.One way a dating site could help is by noticing male users who have a poor ratio of messages sent to message replies.The site could give them advice on the best way to craft their messages, such as this blog post from Ok Cupid’s Ok Trends blog, and this TED talk by Evan Marc Katz.Now that the stigma has diminished, you know this industry is going to race ahead because there’s so much money to be made by whoever can be innovative.So in 2030, I think we’ll be somewhere very different, and I think today’s nine-year-olds will have really incredible ways of finding love when they’re 25.Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
