When online dating started gaining widespread attention a decade ago, many people considered it creepy.
But after the exponential growth of dating websites such as Match and Ok Cupid, online dating has become a mainstream activity.
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.

The results were also statistically controlled for marriage duration and other demographic factors such as education, he says.
The study was funded by online-dating site e but was overseen by independent statisticians, Cacioppo says.
The late film critic Roger Ebert once gave this advice to those looking for love: “Never marry someone who doesn’t love the movies you love.
Sooner or later, that person will not love you.” If that’s true, dating sites — which frequently subject lovelorn members to hundreds of questions about their hobbies, aspirations and values — may be on to something.
Millions of people first met their spouses through online dating.
But how have those marriages fared compared with those of people who met in more traditional venues such as bars or parties? A survey of nearly 20,000 Americans reveals that marriages between people who met online are at least as stable and satisfying as those who first met in the real world—possibly more so.
And those marriages are less likely to break down and are associated with slightly higher marital satisfaction rates than those of couples who met offline, according to a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Of couples who got together online, 5.9% broke up, versus 7.6% of those who met offline, the study found. “Given the marriages that we studied were from one to seven years in duration, I was surprised we found any differences in marital breakups,” says John T.
I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there's a 13-year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart.
So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.
