So in 2030, I think we’ll be somewhere very different, and I think today’s nine-year-olds will have really incredible ways of finding love when they’re 25.

Online is a much better way to accomplish that too.

Online dating usually begins with a flurry of e-mail messages, each more intimate than the last.

Traditional dating relationships that might take months to develop in the real world, take weeks or even days online.

Much has been written about cyber-dating, but little research has been done.

This series of four studies examines the online dating process, similarities and differences between online and traditional dating, and the impact of emotionality and self-disclosure on first (e-mail) impressions of a potential partner.

As for the current online dating options—they strike me as a good first crack at this by humanity, but the kind of thing we’ll significantly improve on to the point where the way it was done in 2014 will seem highly outdated in not too many years.
