Hannah Schneider writes for Elite Daily “So, you’ve been exchanging messages back and forth with a match on a dating app. Each time your phone lights up with a new message from them, you feel butterflies in your stomach. They’re cute, have similar interests as you, and you’re pleased to know you can hold a conversation with them. But… you want to actually meet in person. It’s hard to know what to say to get someone to ask you out. It’s so easy to get stumped when it comes to figuring out how to hint that you want to go on a date.”

The conflicting incentives of online dating sites

Colleague and Friend, Erika Ettin writes for The Bristol Heard Courier  “The founders of online dating sites like Match, JDate, and even Tinder (which is owned by Match) want you to use their sites to meet a significant other. Online dating makes it so much easier to connect with people. And these sites get a thrill out of touting their success stories — using anything from online advertisements to Times Square billboards — and contributing to the ever-growing statistic of how many relationships started online. I love this!Back in the day, according to a study in 1932 (so, way back in the day), a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania looked through five thousand consecutive marriage licenses on file for people who lived in the city of Philadelphia and found that a whopping 33 percent of the couples who got married had lived within a five-block radius of each other before they got married. (If you recall, my parents met because they lived next door to each other. Mom is five-and-a-half years older, though, so she was out in the working world and my dad was in school!)”

Natalia Lusinski writes for Business Insider ” Though dating apps are a common way to meet people these days, there are still many people who prefer to meet romantic prospects in real life for the first time.According to a 2017 report by Statista, 61% of Americans aged 18-29 and 44% of Americans 30-59 are currently using a dating site/app or have used one in the past. However, a 2018 survey by polling platform The Tylt found that almost 84% of millennials would rather find love “in real life” than online. “Meeting people ‘in the wild’ makes conversations more organic and easygoing,” Maria Avgitidis, founder of Agape Match, a matchmaking service based in NYC, told Business Insider in an email. Avgitidis said that meeting in person provides an opportunity for exploration, curiosity, and a different kind of sexual tension. “More significantly, you’re not hiding behind a screen and turning a soulmate into a pen pal,” she said.”

5 reasons people message on dating apps but never meet up

Lane Moore writes for The Washington Post ” I’m on Tinder constantly for my comedy show “Tinder Live,” and I often see men say in their dating profiles: “I don’t want a pen pal. Let’s actually meet up.” Every time I think: “Of course you don’t want a pen pal. Who does?” My theory is that before women commit to spending meeting up with someone, they want to get a sense of: (a) Is he safe? and (b) Is he worth actually going on a date with? I hear so often from men and women on dating apps who are frustrated that they’ve ended up as pen pals, so I spoke with several daters and a psychologist to try get to the bottom of whether daters want to be pen pals, or if it’s just something that happens when you’re trying to meet your soul mate but you’re too tired to put on pants and go out.”

How To Know When You’re Ready To Start Dating Again After A Breakup

Kasandra Brabaw writes for Refinery29 “After a breakup, you’ll likely get more advice than you’d ever want. Depending on the type of friends and family you have, you might hear, “The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.” Or, they might tell you to take time off and focus on yourself. Or, if your friends follow celeb trends, they’ll probably tell you to take up sculpting.”

How tech bros ruined dating for young people

Mary Kay Linge writes for The NY Post ” “I feel like I can’t be myself,” confesses Bree, a young woman from Plainfield, Ill. “You don’t want to seem like you care,” says Cam, slouched on a couch in Santa Cruz, Calif. “I hate it, I hate it,” sobs Cheyenne of Austin, Texas. “Everything, so much of who you are, is dependent on how you look.” “It exhausts me,” admits Alex. “Nothing good happens from Tinder,” agrees Kyle, Alex’s sometime boyfriend — even though the two New Yorkers met through the massively popular dating app.”

He scammed $1.8 million from women he met online! How to protect yourself.

Scott Cohn reports for CNBC ” The dating game is increasingly played online. According to a study from the Pew Research Center, nearly 36 million Americans — roughly 15 percent of the adult population — have used an online dating site or mobile app, compared with just 3 percent a decade ago. Of those who have used the technology, 80 percent say it is a good way to meet people. But unlike other computer games, the risks in online dating are not just virtual. “You’re dealing with total strangers, and so I think that’s one of the reasons that it’s ripe for potential fraud,” Arizona Assistant Attorney General Scott Blake told CNBC’s “American Greed.”
