And that’s just the thing: It seems as though the Tinder model simply works.
In the year 2007, online dating sites earned just over $1 billion in revenue.
That number is expected to climb as high as $1.65 billion by the year 2012.
It’s no wonder that the Internet has impacted dating the way it has, considering how it has changed the way we watch TV, get our news, read books and, of course, shop.
It’s the shopping part of online dating that tells the biggest tale.
It’s hard to say with any certainty how online dating will change in the next few years, but there are two things you can be sure of: online dating isn’t going anywhere, and it’s going to continue to make some serious bank.
Single people have many choices when it comes to dating apps.
That puts it head of Candy Crush Saga, Spotify, even You Tube and Pinterest.
One would assume, based on that data, that other dating apps would rank high up there as well.
In the case of Ok Cupid, users can message one another without matching.
On Bumble, once a match is established, the female must message within 24 hours.
Today, online dating sites generate more revenue than, let’s say, online pornography.
