Online Dating Growing Through the Ages
In the world of love, online dating services have become the apple in the Garden of Eden. Everyone is having a bite. Even those that thought just a few years back that they would never partake, now do. Only those that sell porn rival online dating sites.
Online dating services are usually defined as any online service that offers unmoderated matchmaking, although that definition is always changing. Take for example the relatively new offshoot of social networking for singles, with subgroups within Facebook and Second Life becoming de facto dating services.
But traditionally, sites like Match.com, Yahoo! Personals and eHarmony have led the charge, and continue to grow day by day. However, niche personal sites like JDate (for Jewish singles), Christian Mingle (for Christian singles) and Manhunt (for gay men) have become just as popular and offer a more select line of love interests for the discriminating and yearning heart.
