E-Dating: More Couples Meeting on the Web

Ad Feedback

The Internet has become the second most common way for people to meet a partner, according to a new poll cited by Time Magazine.

The 2009 survey of 4,000 Americans titled "How Couples Meet and Stay Together" showed 30 percent of new couples now meet online.
"With the meteoric rise of the Internet as a way couples meet in the past few years, and the concomitant recent decline in the central role of friends, it is possible that in the next several years the Internet could eclipse friends as the most influential way Americans meet their romantic partners," researchers from Stanford University and the City College of New York wrote.

However, the study also suggested the most satisfied couples were those who met through church.
