Nowadays, one third of people prefer online dating more than any other form of dating.
As online dating becomes more popular, traditional dating habits have started to diminish.
The casual nature of dating in real-life has begun to transition to cyberspace in a casual form of dating known as "hooking up." Laurie Davis, the CEO of e Flirtexpert.com, believes that technology is one of the biggest influences on the influx of casual online hook-ups: "The user behavior is really what's changed.
"I mean, we are so much more than this first impression that we're giving in our profile, but it also means that people are going to be making snap judgments about you, which could kind of be hard for your heart to take too," Davis said.
Although, some say that approaching someone behind a computer screen does have its benefits. He claims that getting rejected online can be much easier than getting rejected in person.
And I don't think online dating is meant for courting." Chelsea Hunter, a 24-year-old graphic designer, said.
