I've tried on-line dating and I've met some very nice people and some VERY "strange birds."  I do recall the days when online dating was considered for people that were really hard up to meet someone.   Well---looks like those days ARE gone.   Online dating is now the #1 way people meet in this 21st century.

New research finds that those married couples who met online are 25 percent less likely to get divorced compared those couples who were introduced through friends, family, or simply by some random chance.  Also just over 33% of people who tied the knot between 2005 and 2012 met their spouses------yes---ON-LINE!!  And couples who met online reported being much happier as a couple in their relationship than those that did not meet through cyber-space.
