There was a time, not too long ago, when online dating seemed crazy.
(At some point, a similar point of view was likely shared when couples started dating unchaperoned.) But by now, online dating is mainstream: according to the Pew Research Center, a full 38 percent of single people in the US have tried it, and if you haven’t, you most certainly know someone who has.
Evaluating the robust functionality of a full-blown website against the swipe-rightness of an app was too unfair.
Well, not every kind: We excluded sites that catered specifically to how someone looked or to “unscrupulous” relationships (think Ashley Madison).
With every generation comes a new way to date — and a new way for the previous generation to judge.
