Recently a reporter interviewed me for a piece they were doing on online dating. At first I was a bit stumped. As a couples therapist I tend to deal with people who already have a partner, and many of my individual therapy clients report a great variety of positive and negative dating experiences, whether they started online or off. So rather than purely going by anecdotal evidence, I reviewed a few formal studies, and especially the findings of a 2011 German study are worth sharing.
It's said that life is better with company and that is very true but what if you can't find your soul-mate? What you can't find that perfect someone? Well some people hit up the bar scene hoping to find "the one". But most people now of days try their luck with online dating websites such as eHarmony and Match.com. With more and more people looking online to find their perfect match its no surprise that the online dating business is a billion dollar industry and growing.

Have you worked and worked on your on-line profile and still attract people you would never pick for yourself? What’s wrong with the system?
