1 month into dating sites
Indeed, for online purveyors of love, business is booming. While people used to meet mostly through friends, says Reuben J. Thomas, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Mexico, “that’s been sharply on the decline since the advent of the Internet.” The dating industry is now worth about $ billion, with revenue split between advertising and subscription services, up revenue up around 5% per year, according to a report by research firm IBISWorld.

Perfect for those of us who only sign up for a month to begin with then realise we’re going to need a bit longer on the site than we first expected.
We’ll be the first to admit evaluating online dating sites is a subjective process. Chemistry, attraction, and love are obviously difficult to quantify, and different people have different desires, needs, and goals for their romantic lives. Plus, your experience with any dating site is going to be colored by all sorts of things: your gender, age, sexual orientation, looks, location. The list goes on.
