Eine Studie von Catalina Toma, Ph.D., professor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison
Laut Dr. Bernie Hogan von Oxford University jede fünfte Beziehung start online.
How can we predict whom we fall in love with and start romantic relationships with? The dating landscape has changed profoundly due to the emergence of online dating. Dr. Bernie Hogan from Oxford University says that around one in five relationships now start online. Online-Paare unterscheiden sich in Alter und Sozialstruktur auch stärker als traditionelle. Most intriguingly, research shows that online dating is not just prevalent, but that it is quite successful in producing satisfying long-term relationships for those who desire them. The previously mentioned study that tracked nearly 20,000 married or committed couples who began their relationships between 2005 and 2012 finds that those who had met online reported greater relational satisfaction, and a lower incidence of divorce than those who had met offline. What explains the success of online dating? The dating companies attribute it to their proprietary matching algorithms.
