Online dating present
As generations change, so does the idea of dating and how one finds a companion.
When the first modern newspaper was invented, people bought personal ads to discreetly connect and communicate with one another in hopes of finding love or sex.
With some very up-to-date, funny, well budgeted and well thought out advertising campaigns dating websites gave people a glimmer of interest.
The adverts showed just how many people used them and consumers soon began to think ‘maybe there’s something in this for me, too? online dating was a world full of ‘normal’ people from all walks of life.

NEVER meet someone you’ve met on the internet alone. The rise of online dating websites was largely due to their successful television campaigns.
From AOL chat rooms, to Myspace bulletins and Craigslist ads–the list goes on and on for ways in which people have used the Internet as a tool to find love, sex and friendship.
In fact, online dating is the second-most-common way for couples to meet–right behind meeting through friends.
So where can we expect online dating to move to in the future?
Some might argue that it’s reached its peak and will stay there.
