The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.
Sure, I mean, if you can net an unlimited amount of models like Di Caprio, what’s the point of settling down? You may be good looking, or even charming, but at the end of the day, just being causal with relationships isn’t what you really want. Do you want a bunch of rotating buds to go see baseball games with?

The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995?
