Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.An online dating service is a company that provides specific mechanisms (generally websites or applications) for online dating through the use of Internet-connected personal computers or mobile devices. Jonathan: Well, most of them have search critereas. But with online dating, people put up some information that they are comfortable sharing, so you can see what somebody does in their free time, what somebody's beliefs are, what somebody is interested in finding, so you may find by doing the search that you meet someone that really matches up with you that you would be interested in contacting without ever going out to the bar, or if you just go out and hit the bar, you may feel a one in a million shot to meet the right person, whereas online, maybe you can search a million people and you find that right one.
That is, online dating sites use the conceptual framework of a "marketplace metaphor" to help people find potential matches, with layouts and functionalities that make it easy to quickly browse and select profiles in a manner similar to how one might browse an online store.Under this metaphor, members of a given service can both "shop" for potential relationship partners and "sell" themselves in hopes of finding a successful match.Finally, it's not just for the young and tech savvy.Research shows it may be just as popular with older adults.Jonathan: So, Jeff, you know, I don't know if I want go out to the pub again on Saturday.

You can see a lot of basic information about people even before you're ever in contact with them.
