The highs and lows of online dating
Years ago, getting involved in a relationship with someone you met online was a bit of a taboo. Not only was it supposedly for weirdos, but it was also seen as a bit dangerous, since you couldn’t tell who was on the other end. These days, however, online dating is not just mainstream; it’s almost expected. Young professionals are often too busy to go to singles clubs and bars (not to mention these venues aren’t for everyone) and it’s just easier to use an app like Tinder than whip up pickup lines.
It turns out that many of the staff at Engadget have quite a bit of experience in the online dating world. From those who met their significant other on the internet well over a decade ago to those who are still exploring this brave new world of digital courtship, we’ve selected a few stories to share with you.
