This relationship can be between people in different regions, different countries, different sides of the world, or even people who reside in the same area but do not communicate in person. Michael Jaffe, author of Gender, Pseudonyms, and CMC: Masking Identities and Baring Souls, "the Internet was originally established to expedite communication between governmental scientists and defense experts, and was not at all intended to be the popular 'interpersonal mass medium' it has become", yet new and revolutionary devices enabling the mass public to communicate online are constantly being developed and released.Rather than having many devices for different uses and ways of interacting, communicating online is more accessible and cheaper by having an Internet function built into one device, such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and smartphones. It has been around for as long as anyone can remember.
Many of my friends are married to people they met online.The adoption of technology has changed the way we connect and converse with others in our society and dating is no exception.The prevalence of smart phones mean we are always contactable, social media allows others to get to know us before we have even met, and dating apps give us an abundance of choice in a suitable partner or partners.As a youth, I would look forward to the weekend just so I could meet a new batch of ladies to attempt to woo.With the arrival of dating apps there has been a change in how many of us are finding our partners and indeed what we are looking for. Tinder lets you search for single people in your area looking to meet for dating or any other activity you could care to mention.
