About online dating sites
Online dating sites have provided a lot of cushion to people aspiring to curate the image they like to present to the world and be the perfect version of themselves to attract a mate.

They are important today — roughly one of every four straight couples now meet on the Internet.
(For gay couples, it's more like two out of every three).
