But with the advent of technology, "dating" doesn't exist anymore.In today’s technology-centric world — where everyone’s phone seems surgically attached to their hand — dating websites and apps are how modern singles find other singles.But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.
And again, this is all assuming the respondents are telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But given how disconnected people are from the process of “courtship” on Tinder, it ends up a train wreck, as exemplified by the rising usage and views on Bye Felipe, the Instagram account that calls out the jerks from Tinder.
The Human Element Beyond all the pseudo-science, online and mobile dating short-circuits the natural courtship process of men and women. It's well-documented that both men and women lie when completing their online profiles.
highlights how Tinder has signaled a “dating apocalypse” because it doesn’t promote actual “dating” — it promotes hookups based on physical appearance.

Hardly unbiased results, but at first blush it reads impressively.
Here's an excerpt from an article on : "A recent study funded by [a major dating website] suggests that as many as 35 percent of Americans now meet their spouses online.The truth is, these questions are very difficult questions to ask.So it's not the dating sites' fault for not being able to bring them up.What's more, the study suggests that those marriages are less likely to end in divorce than those that begin offline."What this article silently implies is that the phrase "meet their spouses online" translates to "meet their spouses while using an online dating site." However, if you read the complete study (and most people don't), you’ll quickly discover that "online" means exactly that: on the internet.Meeting someone online is now commonplace, a reflection of how we as a culture now socialize, not a feather in the cap of the online dating industry.According to the study findings, the most common place to meet a spouse is at work or at school (38 percent).
