72 Online Dating Discoveries

From Swinger Specific Sites to Zombie Lover Hookup Networks

— May 27, 2012 — Lifestyle
A plenitude of online dating discoveries have made navigating the single scene in search on the love of one's life, or the love for right now, a little bit less overwhelming.

The Internet has undeniably altered the way that people interact with each other, and the dating world is no exception to this rule. Meeting a new flame online is nearly as common now as meeting them at a coffee shop, despite the fact that many people will still not openly admit it.

Although the taboo surrounding Internet dating is decreasing in intensity, there still is a mild stigma attached to pursuing a love interest with the aid of the World Wide Web. However, with more of these online-enabled apps and websites popping up and people spending increasingly more time at work and less on the prowl, cupid may be playing less of a role in matchmaking than computers.
