How is the online dating working for you? What do you think about specialized niche sites like Fitness Date Club?

Here is an excerpt from Cristen Conger’s post, Does Online Dating Work? [via Holy Kaw! @ Alltop]:

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Match acquired competitor OkCupid for that sizable cash sum. The acquisition indicates that the online dating industry is successful not only romantically, but also financially when it brings together business relationship seekers.

In fact, the Internet has become one of the most popular places for people to meet, according to the 2010 large-scale survey How Couples Meet and Stay Together.

“(Online dating) definitely works,” said Reuben J. Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology at the City University of New York, who collaborated on the survey. “We estimate that 23 percent of the couples in the U.S. who met in the two years from 2007 to 2009 met online. More people meet online now than meet through school, work, church, bars, parties, et cetera.” (, February 11, 2011.)
