Where are the questions about environment, economic conditions, and outside influences?(Example: Long-standing research shows that when couples encounter stress or unexpected demands on their energy, their satisfaction with their relationship declines, often leading to breakup or divorce.)Why don't these dating sites take critical happenings, variables and milestones into account when evaluating compatibility — money management, financial strain, losing a job, illness, death of a parent, moving, raising kids (not "do you want kids," but rather, asking questions about parenting style and actually raising kids)?
Primal dating rituals and natural courtship don't include posting a profile and a few pictures, or swiping right to indicate interest. Old pictures, employment status, income, weight, age — over 80 percent of online daters don't tell the truth.

Normally, this would be a great thing, as technology makes things better.
But when it comes to love, all technology does is leave a wake of emotional destruction, disconnection, and false positives.
It seems like everyone's looking for love online ... A few short years ago, we had to put some actual effort into dating and finding love. We connected with friends and headed out on the town/to the bar/to the game.
To meet possible compatible love partners, we started a new hobby, networked in our social circles, had friends set us up on blind dates, and generally spent some time looking for someone just as amazing/screwed up as we are.
Hardly unbiased results, but at first blush it reads impressively.
Here's an excerpt from an article on : "A recent study funded by [a major dating website] suggests that as many as 35 percent of Americans now meet their spouses online.
But these are questions/considerations that need to be taken into account.
