A couple weeks ago, this CNN Money piece attempted to take down online dating. However, as this Digital Trends rebuttal point out, the author and his cohort basically just elaborate their own string of user errors.
Micah of Digtal Trends sums it up nicely in this conclusion (my emphasis):
The Internet hasn’t ruined dating anymore than email ruined writing or YouTube ruined television. If you find the former impersonal, you can still send a proper letter. If you find the latter infuriating, you don’t have to watch Jenna Marbles. And if you don’t like how you’re dating experience has gone online, then go about it differently. After all, the Internet ain’t going away, and singles bars have always kinda sucked.
