The idea of being able to find potential partners and even sort them by age, eye colour, location, sexual orientation, etc., was a major leap for the time.
People no longer have to be home, at the office, or at an internet café to try their luck with finding a partner.
But the most obvious expression of people's tendency to use quicker and more efficient tools is the rise of mobile dating apps.
Platforms exist for different races, religions, fans of different sports, people of different body weights, different financial statuses, etc.
This ties in with the shift towards spending less time on the internet and quickly moving to real world interactions.
The result is that less time is spent on internet dating platforms and people can take their interaction off-line, quicker.
The rise of social media has also made it easy to get a quick picture of a suitor’s personality in less time. There are dating platforms being made to cater to people of all sorts of characteristics, values, interest, and backgrounds.Internet connectivity has become phenomenally convenient. Whereas people needed to be at home or at the office to connect to the net, it is now possible to access the internet over Wi-Fi networks as you move about.It is also currently much faster and more reliable than it earlier was.For example, instead of spending time sifting through profiles looking for a vegetarian partner, all one has to do is sign up with a vegetation niche dating site.In line with the fast-paced lifestyle that describes the modern times, technology makes it easy to be connected with the rest of the world while on the move. For online dating and chat rooms, devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops mean users can now connect from anywhere, anytime.By the year 2000, the ability to search for and find other singles had become too old. To this end, new computer programs were developed for the dating industry.
