Dating today is very different from how it was at any other time in the past. Why? The most obvious change has been brought about by the rapid growth in internet usage and subsequent rise in new online dating sites. Whoever would have thought, even ten years ago, we’d soon be choosing our potential mates as we might sort out an online grocery shopping list? We search for houses, holidays, clothes, books, music, mortgages, loans, courses, cars and almost everything online. Now, looking for interesting people has become as normal and taken for granted as any other form of service we might be seeking.
This book is not only about dating pursued via the internet. Look at all the varied forms and exciting new ways that dating entrepreneurs are inventing to help us break the isolation and bring us together. Old-style introduction agencies still exist and continue to thrive. Speed dating is another form of face-to-face get-together, which, by packing as many people into a room as possible, probably mirrors the old village dance/marriage market our ancestors used to enjoy. hopes. There are hobby-based groups, cultural exchanges, holidays for singles, dance dating, dinners in the dark.
This book concentrates on the more serious end of the spectrum, where women and men are looking for real relationships rather than sexual ‘hook-ups’.
