Online Dating in the Decade of Algorithms — Real Communications Between Couples Needed — Sooner the Better.

    Online Dating

    Interesting discussion in today’s papers on online dating and the digital age. The problem I see is that computerized analytics, which are central to mostl dating sites, can never replace personal communications. Such communications are critical and provide for a reality check on forming new and lasting relationships. The earlier this happens the better. “Love Isn’t a Battlefield Anymore.
