It has been concluded after a long-term analysis that online dating has become far common across the world, which is a matter of concern, says a team of researchers from the Association for Psychological Science. The report has found that internet has become an easy source to start a new relationship.
According to the report revealed, one meeting with someone through friends follows an addition in the friend list on social sites and eventually, leads to beginning of a new relationship. It is being said by the team that internet help adults and youngsters to sprout a new affair via digital dating.
It has also been told by the team that varied match-making websites available on internet promise young people to find them a perfect match by simple scientific quizzes. Digital dating and video chatting have brought a much demanded twist in relationships and the trend is thus, increasing day by day.
Relationships that seem to be healthy and romantic online have the greatest impact on one’s emotional as well as physical health, about which people are unaware. In addition, appraising hundreds of potential dates can equally result in making people more choosy, picky and judgmental, says the report.
However, a previous study had shown that millions of people logged in to dating sites only in the month of April, which further had proved that social stigma that was surrounding internet dating at first, had been disappearing. But, the new study has again contradicted the previous one, as it reveals that number of people searching for soul mates through internet has considerably increased over time.
“Simply sorting through profiles as if they were characteristics that you might have of a car or a pair of pants is not the right way to evaluate who would be a good person to date", said Harry Reis, one of the report's five authors and a Professor in psychology.
