Aspiring entrepreneurs often approach me as an angel investor, touting their innovative idea for yet another online dating site.
I first created an OKCupid account in 2011, and for nearly five years, online dating and I had a tumultuous, on-and-off relationship.
Then, in December of 2015, I decided I would take a break from online dating—and that unlike my previous "breaks," this one would last for more than a few weeks.
Sure, some people use online dating for cybersex or even just to chat, without any intention of meeting, but the real value of online dating is efficiency. They've become a medium for getting people to meet offline rather than keeping the conversation online.
Dating sites like How About We help you find dates to go on, while Love Room matches you with someone to live with for a week.
This makes the case that online dating really is for everyone.I agree the need is out there, with over 91 million interested singles between the age of 19 and 45 around the world.Yet almost no one in this business makes any money, since it comes with a larger list of challenges than most other opportunities I see.The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.
