Here at SkaDate we often report about the success the world of Online Dating enjoyed throughout the last decade. Growing number of people accepted the phenomenon as mainstream, while companies dealing with virtual matchmaking generated the ever-increasing revenues. This seems to be the history of the Industry for now – cold but quickly changing numbers, and colorful profitability charts.
It wasn’t always like that. There was an era that we remember for a much slower pace, black and white photos, and history painted with cute nostalgic brushes. Actually, that’s when computer dating takes its start.
The common misconception is that the idea of finding dates with the help of digital technologies appeared on the scene in the 90s’, along with bulky cell phones, PlayStations, and Power Rangers. With all these wonderful things around it’s a miracle, really, that people even had time to do something online, let alone date. Also, it was kinda hard to do back then, since the World Wide Web as it is was launched only in 1991.
