As the saying goes, in order to catch fish, you have to go to the pond.Traditionally, the "dating pool" has tended to be either in bars and clubs or in social groups such as churches.Some believe that most people meet the person they will marry as early as high school or college.However, a 2006 Harris Poll revealed that most Gen Xers and Baby Boomers met their marriage partners at work.Schools were only the best place to meet a future spouse for the Echo Boomers (age 18-27).Another very common avenue of meeting a life partner was being introduced through friends, especially for older people over the age of 59.

People who have been through divorce can also be a bit more cautious or even jaded about love and marriage.They're less likely to jump into a new relationship without knowing more about the other person in advance.That's where the Internet dating sites have really come through.The anonymity of the web has given courage to shy people and hidden the identity of people who don't want everyone to know they're dating.Best of all, sites like OKCupid and provide profiles that let singles sort through the things that are important to them in a date or relationship.These sites, along with other major sites like e Harmony, use sophisticated algorithms to match up likely candidates for love, and it seems to be working.
