My prediction is at some point, you’ll have two different types of dating sites/apps.
First you’ll have the more fun, casual dating sites/apps where people can just talk and e-hang-out and maybe go out on a date if they feel like it and if all the planets are aligned perfectly (like OKCupid).
Today I’ll explain the reasons why this overall decrease is happening.
There are many of them, and I’m probably not going to cover them all, but these are the big ones. There are far less “serious” women on dating sites. It’s not that there are more or less women on dating sites.
Big topic today, one many of you have been discussing for a while now.
I’ve mentioned it before…online dating response rates have dropped in a the last few years. As a matter of fact, there’s actually a benefit or two to this reduction in response rates I’ll describe in a minute.
Instead of a site where you go find someone to date, these sites are trying to become places where you just “hang out” and talk to people when you’re bored or want attention. More men are on more dating sites, so women are getting more picky.
New sites and apps, like Tinder, are coming on board and are slowly but surely replacing the bigger, more established sites.
This is a very good thing and I’m excited to see what new methods the geeks will come up with in the future.
