Posted May 04, It is a truth universally acknowledged that dating in the online world is harder to navigate than hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

And much like the staggering amount of Tinder selfies snapped at the ancient archaeological site, online dating buzzwords are being unearthed left, right and centre.

One-third of people who have used online dating have never actually gone on a date with someone they met on these sites.

To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
