That strikes me as deeply bizarre, since every single single person I know has tried or is actively trying online dating. More Than Half Concede That The Internet Yields Dates Though continue reading people dating online may be "desperate" to some, 59 percent of survey respondents think that online dating is "a good way to meet people.
Inonly 44 percent thought online dating was a good way to find someone, so this view has changed more than the "desperate" thing in the past 11 years — but still not that much. A whopping 41 percent still think online dating is a bad idea. Though I don't have much personal experience with it, I know a couple of couples who met online and are super happy together, so it would be hard for me to agree.
But it's impossible to say that the Internet is a bad way to meet people, considering that most people use apps and websites for just that purpose these days.
