January is the perfect time for you to meet singles, according to the yeast growth. A new year means a slew of new dating trends are on the look-out for it to jump back in the market.

Online dating has become the most popular way for AMERICAN couples to meet, and has been replaced by the more traditional methods of finding love, a new study shows.

Turning it on social media or dating apps like Tinder seem to be more common than ever before, suggests a study from Stanford university sociologist Michael Rosenfeld.

The study, which was published this week, is based on a 2017 a national survey of U.s. adults found that 39 per cent of the heterosexual couples reported on their partner online, compared with 22 per cent in 2009.

Rosenfeld, who has studied mating and dating for over two decades, and says the rise of online dating has not only become popular but has caught up with the traditional methods of meeting a significant other, such as a family or group of friends.

“People don’t trust the new dating technology, and more and more, and the stigma of meeting online, it seems to have worn off,” Rosenfeld said of the Stanford News Service.

“In 2009, when I last researched how people found their significant others, and most of the people were still there, with a friend, as a go-to-meeting of their business partners,” he said. “Back then, if they have websites, they have always turned to friends for help with the set up of their profile page. Friends and family who have helped screen potential romantic interests.”

Some of the theories about online dating and the growth in popularity can be attributed to a number of factors, including the prevalence of the use of smart phones and the wide range of possibilities of potential partners to choose from.

“The rise of the smartphone took to the Internet, dating it from the desktop and drop it into your budget, all the time,” Rosenfeld points out.

“The online dating systems have much larger pools of potential partners, in proportion to the number of people that your mother knows, or how many people your best friend knows. The Dating websites have huge advantages of scale.”
