They examined married couples and couples that didn't last, working with 4,002 responses to a survey, the results of which suggest that online dating is less likely to lead to marriage.

Of the survey respondents, 2,923 were either married (64.18 per cent) or in a romantic relationship (35.8 per cent) and only 280 couples in this pool had met online.

Besides said trust issues, I am a very curious person.

I'm the girl who sings and dances in the car on her way to and from work, obviously not giving a damn about who's watching.

I've been hearing my girlfriends discuss their wins and losses with a variety of online-dating phone apps, so I'm breaking down the newest means of tech-based courtship.

I have always been a little skeptical of online dating, mostly because I have terrible trust issues and pretty much think that every guy is a potential a-hole.

These are among the key findings of a national survey of dating and relationships in the digital era, the first dedicated study of this subject by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project since 2005."The time-tested qualities of trust and intimacy still remain important factors on determining whether a couple stays together, regardless of whether they meet offline or online," says Brenda K.Wiederhold, Editor in Chief of the journal Cyberpyschology, Behavior and Social Networking, in which the paper was published.And often, I’m ashamed to admit, it means being honest that I have faith but being intentionally scant on the details, because I’d rather explain myself in person.I don’t say the words out loud that “God can’t work through the Internet,” but if you want to get technical, that’s kind of exactly what I’m saying when I differentiate between online dating and “real life.” And for someone who works for an Internet ministry, well, that’s sort of obnoxious.
