My parents met each other when they were in their twenties. My mom worked in one store, and my dad in another that was close by. They would stop in to see each other and talk. Then he asked her out and they went to the movies. A couple months later they were engaged and a couple months after that they were married. A couple years after that, I arrived.
Back when my grandparents and parents met each other, everything happened either face to face, by letter or through a phone call. Some say it is the “traditional” way of dating and having a relationship. Times have changed and now meeting people online has become a great way of getting to know someone.
“According to a recent study conducted by Match.com, almost one-third of singles have dated someone they met online. About 20% of those surveyed said they met their most recent first date online, while only 7% said they met at a bar.” Online dating has become more frequent and more acceptable over the years. Sites like Match.com or ChristianMingle.com aren’t the only sources of this activity. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and other communities are resources too. “People today are finding love online through social media interactions that lead to something much more.”
