 Online Dating ~  Finding Love in All the Right Places!

Have you or do you use online dating services?

In 1700, barely a decade after the invention of the modern newspaper, the first matrimonial service was created. These services ran ads on behalf of single men and women who were desperate to find a good husband or wife

The first major Internet dating Web site is widely held to be the combination of kiss.com and match.com, which were both registered by the same person in 1994 and 1995 respectively. Though there were other dating sites at the time, most focused on international dating and had more in common with "mail order bride" services than the dating sites we know today.

In short, online dating isn't the first time that technology has been used to help people find love, but it may be the first time it's actually done a great deal to help.
