People who meet on dating sites are quicker to tie the knot than those who meet in the real world — dating for an average of just over 18 months before getting hitched, compared to 42 months for those who meet offline.To all my single friends, I suggest this: Rather than spend another night talking to another balding banker, or worse, suffer through a complete dry spell, why not make dates come to you?No matter which side of the dating spectrum you’re on, there is definitely an online dating service that’s right for you.
Before I got married, I tried just about every dating site out there.

So clearly that must mean that those are “better” ways of meeting… About 100% How many people are paying for online dating sites at a given time? What this illustrates is that, proportionally, 5% of the population (online daters) accounts for 17% of the marriages in the past 3 years. Go out for one night of drinks and appetizers with your girlfriends.
