Of course there are exceptions such as being hooked up by friends and family usually with someone who their punk asses wouldn’t date themselves : ). Well now we live in an age where convenience is king.
Everything is being made easier and more accessible which includes finding a potential partner.

Finding a suitable mate meant putting yourself out there and actually walking out of your house.

The hook of these stupid things is that "true love" ::in a used car salesman's voice:: might just be a swipe away, folks! Finding yourself unable to get excited about anyone, no matter how 💯 their pics/bio/the conversation is. Or should I test the limits of human cynicism and develop a shell so thick only 100 percent, USDA-certified Grade A love will ever be able to penetrate it, unleashing a Mount Vesuvius of pent-up feelings? Developing an even better sense of humor because what else can you do but laugh? " And "LOLOLOL he's said getting back together with his ex." 7. As in "Need to find somebody to get off apps/Need apps to find somebody." What a time to be alive.
So with this new wave of convenience comes online dating.
I wondered to myself, is this what online dating has done to us?
The Good: Well as already stated it is extremely convenient.
You eliminate all the extra time and money that you may have to spend otherwise in attempting to put yourself in a position to be noticed and found by a potential mate.
When you meet people in the real world, you typically see them in a social context, such as how they interact with workmates, friends and family members.
One negative aspect of online dating is that you are dealing with a digital persona made of words and images (and possibly some online voice or video chats before you meet in the flesh).
