Online dating was first introduced as personal ads in the ‘90s, and then sites like Match, JDate, and e Harmony improved and solidified the process. The ways singles meet has drastically changed because of online dating, and a massive amount of data has been collected over the years about the effects of online dating, the behaviors of online daters, and so on.
