Singles rely on social media to find lovePosted on: February 7, 2013 14:37:21
In an era when the worldwide web dominates everything we do - from how we carry out our work life to the way we conduct our social lives - just how much does it influence our relationships?
Today, as many as a third of new relationships have been created thanks to the internet and dating websites, as boundaries are broken and social networks are expanded.
According to a recent survey, nearly half of women admit to heading online from day one of the dating process to research the person they are about to meet.
Facebook is the most popular place to snoop around to get some more information, Match.com found, but it isn't something that as many men are as keen to do.
Speaking to single blokes, the website found that most guys preferred to wait and find out about the person for themselves.
Social media also influences the way a relationship develops and 'courting' techniques have evolved enormously over the years.
Over half of the people polled in the study said they have received a sext - a suggestive or sexual text message - when dating, while 32 per cent admitted to sending one.
Dr Helen Fisher, biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser at the website who carried out the research said sexting is the modern way to find a mate, comparing the act to "a peacock shimmering its tail feathers"
However, there are some parts of the relationship that should definitely be done in person instead of turning to the latest piece of technology, including telling your new partner you love them or breaking up with someone who isn't right for you.
So, although the internet is a great way to find someone compatible and keep in touch, it is important you don't completely forget about some of the more conventional and traditional methods of dating once in a while too.
