This could mean anything from the weather, to the season of your relationship.

For example, your partner is pregnant certain activities would be out of the question or if it’s winter you probably won’t have a picnic in the backyard.

Instead of meeting people in a fun social environment first, and using all the social tools we have to figure out if you like somebody’s company, technology arrived to help you make a decision about someone without ever even needing to meet them in person.

Of course, online dating wouldn’t be so popular if it didn’t work for so many people.

According to some estimates, over a third of marriages in the US are now from couples who first met online.

To answer this, let’s take a look at some of the main reasons online dating doesn’t work. Researchers in the UK recently calculated the odds of finding a compatible partner if they used the average person’s requirements (in terms of desired age, physical requirements, location, and so on).

They found that just over 84,440 people in the UK fit the average person’s requirements, from an adult population of 47 million. In other words, applying the average person’s filters when it comes to finding a compatible partner gives you less than a 1 in 500 chance of being successful.

Your reasons for finding someone are often broader and more diverse; you may not even be really sure if it’s romance you’re looking for at all.

Add those complications to the fact that online dating is, for many people, a thoroughly dispiriting experience, and it’s no wonder that older adults are more likely to rate it as a negative experience than any other demographic. If people are finding love through online dating sites, why does it fail so many others?

There is increasing evidence that, in face-to-face meetings, we are subconsciously picking up clues about the suitability of future partners based on a wide variety of non-verbal information.

Online dating lures us with the false promise of an “ideal” partner so much that we apply filters that ensure we never get to meet that person in the first place.

What they don’t ever make clear is that each filter you add diminishes your chances of finding a compatible partner even further.

Forget 1 in 562, you could literally be talking about 1 in a million.

Suddenly there was a different way to find a partner, one that promised practically infinite possibilities, where an algorithm could find you the “right” person without you needing to do the hard work of ever actually talking to them in person.
