Now that the iDate Awards are finally behind and SkaDate Dating Software has once again made it to the finals in the category of the best dating software provider, we can return to our regular programming with a roundup of industry-related news.
Don’t forget to scan through our own news posted in January, as we had a few cool things reported, making SkaDate dating script a must buy, especially this time of year. Well, let’s get down to business and see what you might have missed in the last couple of week, shall we?
Peter Ludlow, Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University: “Finding a partner used to be expensive, and the market was inefficient. If you lived in a large city, there were always people looking for partners, but the problem was how to find them. [...] Now you go online, select a partner, and you are immediately dating someone who is at least interested in you.”
Rachel Ryan, Blogger: “In the era dominated by the conventionless hookup culture, online dating is a very direct way of making it clear that you’re not interested in pursuing the status quo. You don’t want to shut up and hookup, you want to go out to dinner. You want to date. That is doing wonders for monogamy.”
Lenka Jaloviecova, Suddeutsche Zeitung: “In Germany – where a study by online dating site Partnersuche.de revealed that eight million people use online singles sites – the concept filled a gap in the market although it’s nothing new in the United States where “virtual dating assistant” services have been up and running for three years.”
Elyssa Millspaugh, Editor: “The time period between Christmas and Valentine’s Day is the peak for online dating, perhaps as people hope to change their relationship status in a new year.”
Eli Finkel, Professor of Social Psychology: “It’s not like there you are and you’re in an eight-year marriage and you’re happy with your husband and then all of a sudden a new guy enters the bedroom and now you have to choose.”
